Healthy Lifestyles Begin with Alaska Seafood

Alaska salmon is known for its excellent nutritional value. It's a rich source of various essential nutrients and is considered a healthy choice for a well-rounded diet that the whole family will love. The exact nutritional values can vary depending on the specific type of salmon (e.g., sockeye, coho, king) and how it's prepared, but here's a general overview of the nutritional content for a 3.0-ounce (100-gram) serving of cooked, wild-caught Alaska salmon:

The Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute provides some great reasons why healthy lifestyles can indeed start with incorporating Alaska seafood into your diet:

Heart Health

Regularly eating fatty fish reduces the inflammatory substances produced in the heart’s arteries, improving their function, and Omega-3’s from wild Alaska seafood give your heart a health boost.

Boosting Mood

The connection between diet and brain health has been well documented and omega-3 fatty acids, particularly DHA & EPA, can change your brain and help to improve your mood.

Brain Health

Consuming a nutrient-dense diet that includes wild Alaska seafood ensures adequate intake of nutrients such as omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D that can boost brain health.

Immune Function

Whether you’re young or old, seafood omega-3s may tone down overactive immune responses and can improve your immune function.
