It is well established that seafood is an excellent source of a large variety of nutrients including high-quality protein. In addition to the high-quality protein and micronutrients provided, fish is the primary source of long chain omega-3 fatty acids which are found in oil of fatty fish. The importance of nutrients in fish and fish oil in health maintenance, and promoting normal nutrition for growth, and development has been documented in medical studies.
