According to FAO’s latest report, The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, global per capita fish consumption is 20.5 kg and is expected to continue to grow over the next 10 years. It is expected to reach 204 million tonnes in 2030, an increase of 15% over 2018. Aquaculture accounts for 46% of production. 52% of this production is destined for human food. In the same year 2018, production was 179 million tonnes, with a value of $401 billion. China is the world’s largest producer. Good news: 78.7% of fish landed comes from sustainable fishing. African aquaculture production is expected to increase during the same period by 48% while the continent’s fish consumption is trending downwards. The coronavirus has caused a 6.5% drop in catches.
