In our previous article in International Aquafeed (vol. 16, issue 2, March/April 2013, 22-24), the concept of sustainable production of functional fish feeds and hence fish was introduced. Our work focuses on cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) and how we can produce sustainably functional fish feeds and hence fish with enhanced cardioprotective activities. Even today, it is still not entirely clear why some cohorts in the seven countries study had coronary heart disease (CHD) at low frequencies but high levels of serum cholesterol (Keys et al., 1984). In our everyday practice as nutritionists and aquaculturists, this question needs to be addressed: do we really need to lower our serum cholesterol in order to protect ourselves from CHD and CVDs?
