You Are What Your Seafood Eats
Linking Nutrient and Contaminant Patterns in Aquatic Food Webs with Human Health
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
A lecture byRoxanne Karimi
Candidate for the science position in Environmental Studies
The consumption of seafood functions as an important link between our environment and our health. Seafood consumption is increasing worldwide, and understanding the risks and benefits of eating different species of fish is critical for human health. Fish from both freshwater and marine environments are primary sources of nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids and essential trace metals, as well as contaminants, including mercury. This talk will examine how ecological factors influence nutrient and contaminant concentrations in aquatic organisms, and human health through fish consumption.
