Benefits of seafood beyond Omega-3?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created October 06, 2012 at 4:16 PM

Discussions of seafood in paleo circles usually center around the good doses of Omega-3 that one gets from wild fatty fish (salmon, sardines, herring, etc.) There's very little discussion of other benefits, except for maybe the occasional comment that oysters are high in zinc.

My question: What nutrients do seafoods have that meat doesn't have, beyond Omega-3?

From what I understand selenium and D3. Sardines are an outstanding source of coQ10.

Sea food and fish make me feel a lot better than meat often does, particularly red meat although I do like just about all meat. I suspect there is an awful lot in sea food we hardly know is there but is very good for you as so many groups of early man lived by the sea and developed eating what the shoreline and shallow waters provided.

Antioxidants, sorry about the ridiculously long research paper.
