Several projects at NIFES examines the content of contaminants in Norwegian seafood. Therefore, we have quite an extensive amount of data on undesirable substances and heavy metals. Seafood is also a unique source of nutrients. In order to say something about the overall effect of eating seafood, it is therefore important to analyze the nutrient content in the seafood. Seafood is a good source of protein, vitamin D, selenium and iodine as well as the marine fatty acids EPA and DHA, but the number of analyzes from different species is currently limited
The objective is to determine total fat, fatty acids, protein, vitamin D, iodine and selenium in 100 farmed salmon and in approximately 50 samples from Pollack and crayfish.
