This report describes the material flow in the seafood supply chain (input-output structure) for the six commodity species that are the focus of PrimeFish (Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, European sea bass and gilthead sea bream, pangasius catfish, atlantic cod, atlantic herring). Cod and herring are selected as examples of demersal and pelagic fisheries.
Sea bass and sea bream are treated as a single group as almost perfect substitutes, sharing very similar production and post-harvest value-chain characteristics. The report is a synthesis of 17 individual value-chain reports. The report is based on publicly available data, and for each species covers: farmed production or landings, imports, processing, export and consumption.
