According to BusinesStat, in the period under review, sales of fish products increased by 11.0% and in 2015 amounted to 138.0 million tons. It is expected that in 2016-2020 sales of fish and seafood in the world will grow by an average of 3, 2% per year.

Since fish is a perishable commodity, specific requirements are imposed on it and its processing requires considerable capacity.

In 2011-2015, the share of domestic products dominated in the structure of world sales of fish and seafood: an average of 77.5%. In 2015, the production of fish and seafood in the world amounted to 145.4 million tons, which is 11.4% higher than the 2011 figure. China is far ahead of the largest fish and seafood producer in the world with a production volume of 55.2 million tons in 2015 year

In 2011-2015, the global volume of growing fish and seafood increased by 24.5% and in 2015 amounted to 76.5 million tons.
