In three years, we will eat more farmed than wild fish

WORLDWIDE
Monday, June 10, 2013, 02:30 (GMT + 9)

Two international organizations predict that fish consumption will experience strong growth over the next decade, and will change from 19 kg per capita between 2010 and 2012, to 20.6 kg in 2022.

This was confirmed by the United Nations Organization for Food and Agriculture (FAO) and by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in the Agricultural Outlook 2013-2022 report.

The two agencies expect that the consumption of farmed fish will exceed that of wild fish in 2015, the agency Lusa reported.

Fish intake should increase on all continents, except in Africa, and it would grow faster in Oceania and Asia, as it was indicated in the report presented by the Secretary General of the OECD, Angel Gurría; and the director general of the FAO, José Graziano da Silva.

The projections of the report indicate that in 2022 the fish bred in captivity will represent 53 per cent of human consumption.

Meanwhile, the consumption of fishmeal and of fish oil will be conditioned by the dependence on the increasingly regulated fisheries sector.

It is expected that fish production in 2022 will reach 181 million tonnes, that is to say 18 per cent more than the average of the mean base of the period 2010-2012.

The report issued by both international institutions anticipates an increase of only 5 per cent in fisheries while aquaculture would grow by 35 per cent: from an average of 63 million tonnes in the period 2010-2012 to 85 million tonnes in 2022.

The growth rate would fall from 6 per cent in the last decade to 2.4 per cent per year due to the rising prices of feed and to energy expenses, coupled with a more limited availability of production sites.

FAO and OECD forecast that the weight of aquaculture on world fish production should increase from 41 per cent recorded between 2010 and 2012 to 47 per cent in 2022.
