Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our May 2020 newsletter, we featured an article written by our UF-IFAS Sea Grant Agent, Shelly Krueger, discussing the importance of purchasing and eating seafood from local vendors.Canva - Seafood in a Tray

"Seafood is very easy to prepare at home. In fact, you can make a delicious and healthy main course with just three ingredients – local seafood, garlic and butter.  Pick up some local stone crab claws, spiny lobster, shrimp, or fish then sauté or grill with the garlic and butter, and dinner is served! US seafood from your local fish house or fish market is highly regulated for safety and sustainability. There are also numerous health benefits to eating seafood.  It is a great source of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, as well as zinc and selenium, which help support your immune system."
