    Abstract

    Capture fisheries and aquaculture supplied the world with about 148 million tonnes of fish in 2010 (with a total value of US$217.5 billion). With sustained growth in fish production and improved distribution channels, world fish food supply has grown dramatically in the last five decades, with an average growth rate of 3.2% per year in the period 1961–2009, outpacing the increase of 1.7% per year in the world’s population. World per capita food fish supply increased from an average of 9.9 kg (live weight equivalent) in the 1960s to 18.4 kg in 2009, and preliminary estimates for 2010 point to a further increase in fish consumption to 18.6 kg. China has been responsible for most of the increase in world per capita fish consumption, owing to the substantial increase in its fish production, particularly from aquaculture (FAO, 2012).
