Abstract: This chapter presents a protocol for assessing the effects dietary seafood consumption on depressive symptoms. We designed a cross-sectional study of 206 participants recruited in two Torres Strait Island communities. Depressive symptoms were assessed using the adapted Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (aPHQ-9), diet was analyzed with a structured questionnaire, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acid concentrations were measured via a capillary dried blood spot system, and plasma levels of triglycerides and cholesterol were measured by gas-phase chromatography. Finally, we tested the relationship between seafood consumption, blood lipid concentrations, and depression scores using independent samples t-tests and a logistic and quantile regression model.
