As saltwater crab populations swell in North America, some people are urging others to avoid the fish altogether, arguing that it is an invasive species.
But the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says that in fact, saltwater corals are harmless to humans.
“In addition to providing habitat for corals, salt water corals provide essential nutrients to marine life,” the agency says in its report, which was published Wednesday.
“They are a major source of protein for crabs and have a variety of other benefits to humans.”
It notes that there are several species of saltwater coral, including the freshwater corals that are common in Florida.
But those species are considered invasive because they do not belong to the same genus as the freshwater species.
For example, the freshwater coral is more common in tropical areas, but saltwater is more commonly found in temperate areas, such as the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean.
The freshwater coral can survive for decades without eating or eating their shellfish.
“While we are aware of the fact that there may be saltwater crocidians in the U, and we have been trying to control them, we also know that they are not harmful to people,” said Mark Reifler, the agency’s deputy director for seafood, in a statement.
“We urge people to focus on the foods they eat, not on the predators or the diseases they carry.”
This isn’t the first time scientists have suggested that eating the seaweed could reduce the spread of disease.
In the 1950s, researchers reported that eating saltwater oysters prevented the spread and death of a deadly disease that was spreading in the oceans from Atlantic to Pacific.
But a more recent study found that the disease was not killed by eating oysters.
The new report comes after researchers found that eating corals increased the risk of death in the same study.
And that study found the effect was even more pronounced when the researchers adjusted for a person’s weight.
The EPA report also suggests that eating seaweed may be a way to protect people from some diseases.
It noted that some of the diseases carried by sea animals are transmitted by the ocean, and the seaweeds can be a source of protection.
“There are some diseases that can be transmitted by eating seaweeds, and it can reduce the transmission of the disease,” the report states.
“The risk is not insignificant.
In fact, the risk could be quite high.”
In addition, the report notes that seaweed has antibacterial properties that could protect people.
But it also notes that the seaweads are often grown in harsh conditions.
