China is the world's largest producer, consumer, importer, and exporter of fishery products. According to a report by Rabobank, completed in 2017, China already consumes 37% of global production of seafood and aquatic products, which in volume terms is almost seven times higher than consumption in the whole of North America.
There has been a remarkable increase in Chinese seafood consumption over the past decade - up 50% to 62 million metric tons, contributing to 65% of global seafood consumption growth over the period. China will continue to make a significant impact on the worldwide seafood industry over the next decade with seafood consumption predicted to rise from the current 44 kg per capita to 50 kg.
China's growing population of young, sophisticated and affluent consumers (located primarily in the major cities) seek to purchase imported seafood products, in part for their status but also because imported seafood is believed to be of higher quality and coming from a cleaner environment.
