Fisheries production, utilization and supply

In 2009, 145 million tonnes of fish were caught or farmed through aquaculture globally, of which about 122 million tonnes were used as food for people (FAO 2012d). In 2010, the estimated annual per capita fish consumption was 18.6 kilogrammes as compared to 9.9 kilogrammes in the 1960s (FAO 2012d). Africa consumes the least amount of fish per person while Asia is responsible for two-thirds of all fish consumption globally with China representing about half of the fish consumed in this region (FAO 2012d).
