“IT HAS BEEN CALCULATED that if no accident prevented
the hatching of the eggs and each egg reached maturity,
it would take only three years to fill the sea so that you could
walk across the Atlantic dryshod on the backs of cod.’
Alexandre Dumas,
Le Grand Dictionnaire de Cuisine, 1873

Seafood is one of the largest industries on the planet

12% of global livelihoods – 1 out of every 10 people on the planet derive their income from seafood and aquaculture. 90% of our seafood comes from millions of small scale producers in developing nations.

90% growth in consumption – people are eating more seafood than ever. In the past 50 years global per capita consumption has nearly doubled

$150 billion in annual export value – export value doesn’t include retail, or domestic production so full estimates of the industry size are upwards of $500 billion USD. Full retail estimates are close to USD$1 trillion
