The full report:
- Sets out the UK seafood supply base in the context of global protein supply.
- Frames changing supply in terms of key risk dimensions and developments including availability, affordability, nutrition/safety, preferences, environmental constraints and innovations.
- Considers long-term drivers affecting seafood.
- Draws on industry experience to reflect on changes in the supply base over the last 15 years and what may be expected to 2030.
- Confirms seafood to be a significant component of global meat production with important contributions from whitefish, tunas, prawn and salmon; seafood production is likely to expand – particularly those species amenable to aquaculture.
- Confirms that seafood consumption levels, relative to other meat proteins, are at a high level globally, but at lower levels in developed countries like the UK.
- Shows that industry stakeholders have a generally positive view of anticipated supplies to the UK to 2030 across capture and aquaculture.
