Low Omega-3 Index levels in this region correlates with a higher risk for disease

New research released in July 2019 utilized the data SNP collected in seven cities within the southeast/south central region of the U.S. known as the “Stroke Belt.” What was found was the mean Omega-3 Index levels were 4.4% – relatively low compared with the desired 8%–12% “cardioprotective target,” the range shown to be beneficial to help prevent cardiovascular disease.

Researchers at OmegaQuant, Dr. Bill Harris and Dr. Kristina Jackson, analyzed the Omega-3 Index in 2177 individuals participating in free health screens organized by SNP in 7 cities in this region, Charleston, WV; Indianapolis, IN; Jacksonville, FL; Lexington, KY; Memphis, TN; Oklahoma City, OK; and Toledo, OH.

Of all the people tested, only 27 (1.2%) had an omega-3 level of 8%−12% (in the desirable range), whereas 914 (42%) had an omega-3 level of ≤4% (in the undesirable range). An O3I of 8% or more is associated with a 35% lower risk compared with an O3I of 4%.

Support for increasing fish intake comes most recently from the 2018 NIH-AARP Diet and Health study, which looked at risk for death from a variety of causes in over 420,000 older individuals as a function of reported fish intake. They found reductions in mortality from Alzheimer’s disease of 38% and 24% in women and men, respectively. Reductions in all-cause mortality, CVD, cancer, and respiratory disease were all significant.

SNP would like to thank the funders who make this important work possible through their financial contributions to SNP. Please join them and contribute today.

Grant to Link Foundation’s Sustainability Initiatives with Health and Wellness

Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) is pleased to announce a two-year funding commitment from the Walton Family Foundation. The grant will support initiatives that ultimately educate consumers about sustainable seafood, ensuring delicious meals that are healthy for them and the health of the oceans. Through work with retailers and health influencers, customers will be better equipped to ask the right questions and know how to purchase sustainable seafood. The grant also supports the expansion of SNP’s Little Seafoodies digital communications campaign, which encourages parents to serve more sustainable seafood to their children for lifelong health benefits. 

These activities support Walton Family Foundation’s approach to grantmaking, which focuses on making an impact to improve lives today that lasts to benefit future generations.

“We appreciate the Walton Family Foundation’s support in helping Seafood Nutrition Partnership’s longer-term goal to increase demand for sustainable seafood by the general American public and building lifelong seafood consumers,” said Seafood Nutrition Partnership President Linda Cornish.

“Linda and Seafood Nutrition Partnership have built the critical message around the value of sustainable seafood for human health with the health and nutrition community,” said Teresa Ish, Oceans Initiative Program Officer at Walton Family Foundation. SNP’s work links the foundation’s environmental commitment to educating consumers and benefiting families.

The Walton Family Foundation believes fishing can be the sustainability success story of the 21st century. SNP’s new grant will help reach that vision through collaboration with organizations including: Aquaculture Stewardship Council, Environmental Defense Fund, FishWise, FishChoice, Marine Stewardship Council, Monterey Bay Aquarium Foundation and National Marine Sanctuary Foundation.

Little Seafoodies Digital Pilot Boosts Seafood Sales in Indianapolis

Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) is reeling in moms and kids to the great health benefits of eating more seafood and growing Little Seafoodies. SNP recently completed an eight-week digital pilot campaign in Indianapolis, where seafood dollar sales grew by 2.4% promotional period year-over-year, generating a 300% return on investment. The next step is to develop expansion plans and conduct a fundraising campaign to scale this digital campaign nationwide.

SNP Impact in Indianapolis for the period of March 1 – April 25, 2019:

  • Achieved 3X on project investment with seafood dollar sales up 2.4% YOY. For a $100,000 investment, generated a return of more than $300,000 in sales.
  • Reached more than 300,000 moms through 7.5 million impressions over an 8-week period.
  • Reduced perception that “kids won’t eat seafood” by 35%.
  • 64% of Indy moms intended to serve more seafood after exposure to ads.
  • 13.5% increase in positive sentiment of seafood within in the market area over the three months prior.

“SNP has developed a model that works to empower and encourage moms to serve seafood to their kids more often and begin to build habits towards eating seafood at least twice a week, which is recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans,” said Judson Reis, SNP Board Member and Gorton’s president & CEO.

Seafood Nutrition Partnership is the leading charitable non-profit in the U.S. helping Americans to eat more seafood for better health. SNP was founded in 2013 and has been moving the needle on seafood consumption through public health campaigns.

This campaign is extremely important at this time as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that consumption among kids is on a downward trend. This is reinforced by a new study from the American Academy of Pediatrics that U.S. children are not eating enough seafood and therefore missing out on the important brain health benefits.

“The downward trend on seafood consumption among kids is not good news and we urgently need to build the next generation of seafood consumers now – for their health and the health of the planet,” said Linda Cornish, SNP president.

Building on SNP’s previous work, Indianapolis was selected the most “typical” city in America, and the pilot was conducted utilizing advanced digital technologies to target moms with young kids from March 1 to April 25. SNP tested campaign concepts by delivering messages on growing Little Seafoodies to moms’ cell phones, social media feeds, on their favorite blogs and on morning lifestyle shows. All in all, more than 300,000 Indy moms received our messages around 24 times during the 8-week campaign.

“Seafood Nutrition Partnership’s work is making a difference and is a unique approach in our industry. We invite you to join us as we work to increase seafood consumption and make America smarter and healthier,” said Steve Hart, SNP Board Chair and Global Aquaculture Alliance vice president.
