NFI’s Dish on Fish recognized as a top blog for seafood lovers
The National Fisheries Institute’s Dish on Fish blog has topped media aggregator Feedspot’s list of the “Top 100 Seafood Blogs and Websites for Seafood Lovers,” a positive sign of the blog’s growing reach and resonance, according to NFI.
Dish on Fish, which garners an estimated 10,000 visits and 130,000 likes on Facebook each month, is written from the perspective of Rima Kleiner, a licensed dietitian and nutritionist, NFI said. The blog offers inspiration, education, tips, and how-tos for American consumers in an effort to encourage them to eat seafood at least twice a week, as is recommended in the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Blog visitors hail from across the United States and represent a variety of cooking skill levels, seafood preferences, ages, and demographics, NFI explained. Dish on Fish’s Feedspot recognition goes to show the premium on education that NFI members consistently reinforce, said NFI Senior Vice President Judy Dashiell.
“NFI believes that this third-party endorsement from Feedspot is a good indicator that Dish on Fish messages are resonating,” Dashiell said in a news release. “Dish on Fish’s recognition as the number one seafood blog/website less than two years from its inception is a testament to NFI Members, because they have made seafood education a priority.”
Dish on Fish was launched in summer of 2016, and established a direct bridge between NFI and the U.S. consumer.
“Dish on Fish is a vehicle for NFI to communicate directly with U.S. consumers, food bloggers and health professionals, such as R.D.’s, about the importance of eating seafood at least twice a week,” Dashiell said when the blog was launched in August 2016. “We hope to inspire people who eat and prepare seafood to choose it more frequently, both at home and in restaurants. We’re focused on generating content that is conversation-worthy – like recipes and nutrition tips – while also participating in other online discussions about industry trends, topics and issues.”
