Chart of Fish Consumption By Region

Fish Consumption By Region
In 2015, fish accounted for about 17% of animal protein, and 7% of all proteins, consumed by the global population. Since 1961, the global average annual increase in fish consumption for food has outpaced population growth and exceeded consumption of meat from all terrestrial animals except poultry.
