🚨New in @PNASNews! We demonstrate that aquatic #biodiversity directly benefits humanity via nutritional benefits of #seafood.
I’m thrilled to share this: it's a BIG one for me, it’s the product of > 7 years (!) of developing ideas & collecting data.

@mioconnor and I bridge the gap between #biodiversity science and human nutrition science & demonstrate mechanistic links between aquatic #biodiversity and human nutritional well-being in the context of #AquaticFoods. Photo of seafood at at market in Papua New Guinea,  courtesy
We answer one of the most pressing questions in ecology:

Does biodiversity per se (species richness and ecological functional diversity), distinct from the identities and abundance of species enhance human well-being?

THREAD - What happened at the Huanan #seafood market?

The @WHO report is quite clear on this point: #SARSCoV2 might have jumped from a wild animal sold in this market and maybe other markets in #Wuhan. But what do we know exactly? 1/15

After all this time, the Huanan seafood market still remains the main suspect for a simple reason: most of the early cases had visited at least one market in Wuhan city, and several of them visited the Huanan market. 2/15 Image
According to the report, 10,000 people visited this place every day, making it a perfect setting for an #outbreak. One might argue: what about the cases without market exposure? Good question! 3/15

There has been much action lately around #seafood #traceability, and last weekend I was eating #BlueHarborFishCo Albacore #Tuna - and noticed the claim on the can that they could track all the way back to the boat, and had a @MSCecolabel on the can. #fishery 1/n Image
I was interested if a company could really go all the way back to the boat, so I looked on the blueharborfishco.com web site for fishing boat information. Here it discussed @MSCecolabel and that the trace back is "to a certified sustainable source and #fishing practice" 2/n Image
I was getting suspicious - #seafood #traceability back to the boat? I thought I would check the @MSCecolabel web site for information about this #Tuna #fishery - only 1 MSC web page has the MSC-C-54143 code, and that is a 279 page report that mentions this code 1 time 3/n Image

Canned #seafood #mercury concentration results from class experiment are in & were as expected. Hg in ppm, wet weight w (SD), n=3 cans for each:
Clams: 0.01 (0.001)
Salmon: 0.013 (0.001)
Chunk light tuna: 0.059 (0.017)
Albacore tuna: 0.28 (0.041)

So what does this mean?
We found what was expected based on recommended lists
Albacore levels similar to published studies, all of which typically show this fish w higher and much more variable Hg than FDA risk assessment and publication. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/15364…
