Important part of a healthy diet
The "Enjoy Seafood Twice A Week" campaign - promoted by Seafish UK and the Shellfish Association of Great Britain - is based upon the recommendation by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN), that all adults should eat at least two portions of seafood every week.
This recommendation is endorsed by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), the British Heart Foundation (BHF), and the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF).
