World Consumption of Seafood per Capita

Heimsneysla á sjávarafurðum á mann

As visible in the chart above, the global total consumption of seafood is increasing and has nearly doubled since 1961. Overall consumption is, despite several recession periods, rising.

FAO is pointing out that the consumption of fish in developing countries will increase. Consequently, production will focus more and more on their local market and less on export. It is important to note that the local currency value and exchange rate are inevitably important for market changes.

If the current economic situation in producing developing countries significantly worsens (which  effectively weakens their currency), it can be expected that obtaining foreign currency stays more attractive to such countries than focusing on the domestic market.
