Spencer Garrett, National Seafood Inspection Laboratory; telephone: 228– 769–8964. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The committee’s agenda includes the following issues: nutrient relationships in seafood - selection to balance benefits and risks. Background Seafood contributes a variety of nutritional benefits to the American diet. They are sources of protein, calcium, iodine, copper, zinc, and omega–3 fatty acids. Furthermore, some nutrients may affect bioavailability, toxico-dynamics, and target-organ transport, and thus affect the toxicological response to certain compounds. Contamination of marine resources, however, whether by naturally-occurring or introduced toxicants, is a concern for U.S. consumers because of the potential for adverse health effects. Human exposure to toxic compounds through seafood can be managed by making choices that provide desired nutrients balanced against exposure to such compounds in specific types of seafood that have been found to pose a particular health risk. Consumers, particularly subpopulations that may be at increased risk, need authoritative information to inform their choices. The National Marine Fisheries Service has contracted with the National Academies of Science to produce a report that will recommend approaches to decision-making for selecting seafood to obtain the greatest nutritional benefits, balanced against exposure to potential toxicants and identifies data gaps and research needs. The study objectives will include: 1. Identifying and examining the routes of entry of naturally-occurring and introduced toxicants into the food supply, through seafood sources, and evaluating food consumption patterns of the U.S. population to estimate current levels of intake exposure.
