What is the demand for fish and seafood in Europe?
Seafood consumption and production in Europe is relatively stable. The largest seafood consumers live in France, Spain and Italy: the Southern part of Europe. The largest growth market is Eastern Europe where seafood is increasingly accepted by consumers. Spain is the largest importer of seafood from developing countries but countries in Western Europe like the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom are increasingly important partners for exporters from developing countries.
