Fish and seafood consumption

kilograms per person per year, 1961–2017

Info Edit

The average supply of fish and seafood across the population, measured in kilograms per person per year.

Food supply is defined as food available for human consumption. At the country level, it is calculated as the food remaining for human use after deduction of all non-food utilization (i.e., food = production + imports + stock withdrawals − exports − industrial use − animal feed – seed – wastage − additions to stock). Wastage includes losses of usable products occurring along distribution chains from farm gate (or port of import) up to the retail level. However, such values do not include consumption-level waste (i.e., retail, restaurant, and household waste) and therefore overestimate the average amount of food actually consumed.
