As the name suggests, seafood, in Watertown, refers to any plant or animal grown in seawater and is consumed by humans. Seafood includes sea-water animals like fish and shellfish as well as edible sea-weeds. In some parts of America, all edible aquatic animals are often collectively known as seafood.
There are thousands of species of creatures available in the sea, however, only a small number are considered as food. Some popular varieties of sea-fish are Haddock, Salmon, and Tuna to name a few. Though sea food is consumed all over the world it is largely grown in some parts, which makes transportation of such products a viable market in those areas. For example, live food fish trade form a major market in Hong Kong.
There are also a lot of heath benefits from consuming sea fish as they are rich in nutrients, minerals and Omega-3. Research has also suggested that adding a portion of fish to our diet can cut the chances of suffering a heart attack by half, improve brain functionality, and has also shown to help the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
One alarming trend, however, is the global collapse of sea-food. Such a collapse could be a reason of over-fishing and pollution. A study has confirmed that if the current trends continue ,all fish-stocks worldwide will collapse within 50 years.
