The global seafood market includes various types of fish, mollusks such as snails, crustaceans such as lobsters, crabs, and shrimp, and seaweed. The high protein content of seafood and the relative lack of other, unhealthy food components has driven the demand for seafood in recent years. The rising health consciousness of the population, particularly in developed regions, is thus likely to be a major driver for the global seafood market in the coming years.

On the other hand, the rising awareness about the adverse ecological effects of overfishing could hamper the growth prospects of the global seafood market. Overfishing has caused severe depletion in the volume of marine life in several regions across the world, as excessive fishing affects not just the species of fish being captured but often the entire food web of which the fish species is a part. The steady adoption of fish farming could thus be crucial for the global seafood market in the coming years. Southeast and East Asia are likely to remain the leading regional markets for seafood in the coming years thanks to their dominance in the global fish farming sector.
