Keith Colburn, one of the captain’s on the television series “Deadliest Catch” on the Discovery Channel, has become an ambassador for Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP).

In his role, Colburn will help raise awareness among the public about seafood’s nutritional benefits. He has more than 30 years of fishing experience in Alaska. He has built a reputation as one of the Bering Sea’s most successful crabbers. He is also known as an advocate for sustainable fisheries.

“Seafood has meant everything to me, not just in my professional career, but in my own day-to-day life,” said Colburn. “I’ve always been a believer in the power of seafood for heart health and other benefits, and I’m proud to be able to work with Seafood Nutrition Partnership to get more people on board with seafood in their diets.”

“Keith is a longtime friend and I not only have great admiration for his tough work out in the deep oceans, bringing seafood to our fellow Americans, but also for the passion he has for the industry,” said Detlef Schrempf, SNP board member. “Those of us on the board of the Seafood Nutrition Partnership are honored that he has become one of our ambassadors, and will use his influence to champion our message of good health through seafood.”

Colburn is the fourth SNP ambassador, joining Kelly Armetta, Hyatt Regency Boston executive chef; Jeff Cowles, research chef with Kerry Americas and chef-member of the Research Chefs Association; and Ben Smith, an award-winning chef, author, educator and restaurateur based in Memphis, Tenn., U.S.
