Sales of frozen fish in the world in 2007-2011 grew annually and in 2011 reached 30.0 million tons. China, Russia and Japan became the world leaders in terms of sales in five years, whose share exceeded 50% of global sales. In terms of the number of products sold per capita in 2007-2011, Norway was in the lead. Fish is the most important component of the Norwegian cuisine, so there are traditionally used much more frozen fish per capita than in other countries. According to forecasts of BusinesStat, in 2012-2016, the global sales of frozen fish will continue to grow.
Production of frozen fish in the world from 2007 to 2011 increased to 30.8 million tons. Most of the products are produced in China. However, the highest level of production of frozen fish per capita was recorded in Iceland. Such a high figure is explained by the fact that fishing is the basis of the country's economy with a low population (326 thousand people in 2011).
The world consumes more imported frozen fish than domestic products. The share of imports in global sales in 2007-2011 did not fall below 57.4%. The volume of imports of frozen fish in these years increased by 1.5 million tons. China and Nigeria were the main importers. Exports of frozen fish in the world in 2007-2011 also increased: an increase of 10.3%. In terms of the volume of exported products, China, Norway and Russia occupied leading positions.
