LONDON, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- About CrustaceansThere are approximately 40,000 crustacean species, including shrimp, lobsters, barnacles, crabs, krill, and other related species. The market for crustaceans is growing due to high consumption of seafood worldwide and rising global population. China accounts for 35% of all seafood consumed globally, and we estimate that by 2017, China will become the largest market for seafood globally. Moreover, seafood is preferred for its nutritional value as it is low in saturated fats and a significant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Rising sea levels, abrupt changes in weather patterns, and increased emission of greenhouse gases have affected the marine ecosystem globally. These adverse climatic conditions can limit farming and aquaculture activities. During the forecast period, China is expected to become the largest exporter of crustaceans globally, accounting for about 89% of the total global exports of crustaceans by 2030. Japan is expected to become the largest importer, accounting for about 45% of the total global imports of crustaceans. The per capita fish consumption is also expected to increase to reach 18 kg/person by 2020.
