Inaugural State of the Science Symposium Provides Forum to Outline Consensus on Seafood Nutrition, Sept. 20
Date:8/23/2017

The non-profit Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) Scientific & Nutrition Advisory Council (SNAC) is holding an inaugural State of the Science Symposium in partnership with the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) in Washington on Wednesday, Sept. 20, 2017.

This symposium provides a forum for global leaders in human nutrition to outline the latest consensus on seafood nutrition science. All aspects on the science and technology of seafood, including human nutrition and environmental sustainability will be addressed by leading experts. Educational presentations will merge technical analysis and accessible information for non-specialists.

The 2015-2020 USDA/HHS Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends at least two servings of seafood per week and at least 250mg of omega-3s EPA+DHA per day to support heart and brain health as part of a healthy diet. Only 10 percent of Americans eat seafood twice a week and, on average, Americans take in 80mg of omega-3s EPA+DHA per day.

Speakers for the State of the Science Symposium include:

  • Dr. Tom Brenna, Chair of SNP SNAC, Dell Medical School and College of Natural Science at the University of Texas at Austin
  • Ms. Sara Baer-Sinnott, Oldways - Health Through Heritage
  • Ms. Laurel Bryant, NOAA Fisheries
  • Dr. Susan Carlson, University of Kansas Medical Center
  • Mr. Tim Fitzgerald, Environmental Defense Fund
  • Dr. William Harris, OmegaQuant
  • Captain Joseph R. Hibbeln, National Institutes of Health
  • Dr. Bruce Holub, University of Guelph
  • Mr. Robert Jones, The Nature Conservancy
  • Dr. Scott Nichols, Food’s Future
  • Dr. Judith Rodriguez, University of North Florida
  • Dr. Michael Tlusty, University of Massachusetts

The State of the Science Symposium is made possible by the Title Sponsor DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials; Platinum Sponsor GOED; and Gold Sponsors AkerBioMarine and Wiley’s Finest.

Please contact SNP to inquire about an invitation to the symposium.
