Copper River Salmon: Nutrition Nugget #8

June 1, 2012

Alright, this is more an information nugget than a nutrition nugget . . . Copper River Salmon is sustainable!  The Alaska Department of Fish and Game carefully manages the salmon runs to ensure an adequate number of salmon reach the spawning grounds to reproduce each year. Check out copperriversalmon.org/facts/sustainability for more information on the sustainability of wild Alaskan salmon.

Because evidence shows that the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are important for fetal growth and development, it is recommended that women who are pregnant or breastfeeding consume at least 8 and up to 12 ounces of a variety of low-mercury containing seafood each week.  Copper River Salmon is a great choice for maximizing omega-3s and minimizing mercury!

It is recommended that Americans aim for at least 8 ounces of a variety of seafood per week, with higher omega-3 choices like salmon included often.  Salmon has the added bonus of being low in mercury!

Salmon is a delicious way to get some of your daily vitamin D.  A 3-ounce serving of Copper River Salmon provides as much vitamin D as 3 cups of vitamin D-fortified milk!  The daily vitamin D requirement for children and adults ages 1-70 years is 600 IUs, and increases to 800 IUs for those over 70 years.

Salmon is a great source of selenium, an antioxidant mineral that plays an important role in immune function.  Some studies suggest that selenium may also help protect against certain forms of cancer.

EPA and DHA, the omega-3 fatty acids in salmon, have a wide range of health benefits:

  • Heart Health:  EPA and DHA can help lower triglycerides (fat in your blood) and reduce the risk of heart attack and abnormal heart rhythms.  They can also slow plaque buildup in your arteries, slightly reduce blood pressure, and help prevent blood clots from forming.
  • Reduce Inflammation:   Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation and may lower the risk for some chronic disease, like heart disease, some cancers, and arthritis.
  • Brain and Vision Health:  DHA is highly concentrated in the brain and retina, where it is necessary for vision, nerve impulse transmission, and protection of brain cells.  EPA and DHA are also critically important in the diets of pregnant women for proper fetal brain and eye development.

Copper River salmon is a great choice for lean protein! A 3-ounce serving of Copper River King salmon provides 17 grams of protein with only 150 calories.  You also get a healthy dose of the essential omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA (more than half of your weekly needs!)

Copper River Salmon (including the species King, Sockeye, and Coho) must travel 300 miles up the Copper River to reach their spawning grounds, so they require extra stores of healthy omega-3 fatty acids for their journey.
