Consumption of Seafood in U.S.

Consumption of sea products has grown by 14.6% over the past five years, with new food trends in America and cultural aspects motivating the increase.

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

From an article by the Costa Rican Foreign Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER):

According to a study by Mintel, the consumption of fish and seafood in the U.S. has grown by 14.6% in the past five years. This sector continued to grow even in the most critical period of the last economic crisis suffered by the U.S (2008-2009), a fact that was supported by American's desire to consume healthy products.

Among the causes that have driven sales growth in this sector, and generated high expectations for the next five years, are new food trends of American society and cultural aspects (mass migratory descendants from other cultures, especially Asian).
