Global per capita fish consumption passes the 20kg per year mark for the first time, but natural marine resources continue to be overfished, UN data shows. The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2018. ... Our World In Data is a project of the Global Change Data Lab, a registered charity in England and Wales (Charity Number 1186433). Worldwide per capita fish consumption set a new record of 20.5 kg per year in 2018 and has risen by an average rate of 3.1% since 1961, outpacing all other animal proteins. Overall, consumption per person per year has been increasing steadily, from an average 9.9 kg in the 1960s to 16.4 kg in 2005. Fish consumption has undergone major changes in the past four decades. In the last years, China has accounted for most of the global growth in fish consumption, and the Chinese per capita fish supply was about 26.1 kg in 2005. The most popular species are tuna, cod and salmon. Database FAOSTAT These three domains include statistics on apparent consumption of fish and fishery products based on food balance sheet methodology. To study and analyze the global Fish Finders consumption (value & volume) by key regions/countries, product type and application, history data from 2013 to 2017, and forecast to 2023. To understand the structure of Fish Finders market by identifying its various subsegments. Consumption, however, varies greatly across the EU: from 4.8 kg per person per year in Hungary to 56.9 kg in Portugal. Thus, we reconstruct for the first time the global fish biomass flows in national supply chains to estimate consumption footprints at the global, country and sector levels (capture fisheries, aquaculture, distribution and processing, and reduction into fishmeal and fish oil) taking into account the biomass supply from beyond national borders. The series, starting from 1961, are aggregated into eight major groups of species of similar biological characteristic and are expressed in terms of live-weight equivalent. Data is inclusive of all fish species and major seafood commodities, including crustaceans, cephalopods and other mollusc species. Trends in global fish supply. Three quarters of the fish or seafood consumed in the EU come from wild fisheries, while the remaining quarter comes from aquaculture.
