The event will convene stakeholders such as dieticians, nutritionists, seafood professionals, environmental scientists, and health care and public health professionals. It will focus on the issues and implications of current messaging efforts related to seafood consumption, with the goal of making recommendations for the implementation of a new science-based message.
