EcoFish strives to be the leader in the seafood industry not only on environmental issues, but also on health issues related to seafood. We see it as our responsibility to our customers.
Environmentally aware consumers care about the environmental impact of the food they consume, but they also care deeply about their own personal health, who can blame them?!
For this reason, we are developing a new groundbreaking first of its kind program called Seafood Safe, scheduled to be launched this winter. Seafood Safe is a comprehensive testing program, whereby independent labs test our retail products for mercury and PCB's. Please click on the label below to link directly to details about the Seafood Safe program.
Seafood is an important part of our diets: The medical community overwhelmingly recommends that we all eat seafood regularly, since the numerous health benefits far outweigh any potential hazards. Our Seafood Safe program eliminates any worry of those hazards!
Seafood is a lean source of protein, and many species are full of Omega 3's that have been found to help prevent heart disease, eczema, arthritis, inflammation, autoimmune disease, hypertension, cancer and even depression.
WebMD states: "Seafood is regarded as an important part of a balanced diet, primarily because it contains high-quality protein and omega-3 fatty acids. The latter prevents blood from clotting and protects against irregular heartbeats. The heart-health benefits of fish are so pronounced that the AHA recommends at least two servings of it a week, particularly fish such as mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna, and salmon, since they contain omega-3 fatty acids."
All EcoFish products are All-Natural: This means that absolutely no chemicals or additives ever come into contact with our products — ever. When you purchase EcoFish, all you're getting is the fish, the whole fish and nothing but the fish. You'd be amazed at how many seafood products are normally dipped in chemicals today!
