In this report the PrimeFish project provides an overview on the European seafood sector at large, in comparison with global development. Through a descriptive analysis based largely on FAO statistics from 1950 up until recent years, trends in fisheries and aquaculture quantities (supplies) are presented and compared across continents and to some degree with respect to countries.
Also, using FAO statistics, major development in consumption (demand) are studied. The report focusses mainly on volumes within the seafood sector. The study and the FAOStat basis is to some degree supported with some more recent market information from EUMOFA.
