  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2024-0044
China remained the world's largest seafood producer in 2023, with official production estimated at 71 million metric tons (MMT), up 3.5 percent from 2022. Production growth continues to be driven by aquaculture, which, according to official data, increased 4.4 percent year-on-year to 58.1 MMT in 2023. Seafood imports surged in 2023 to 4.6 MMT, valued at $18.8 billion, led by increased volumes of fresh and frozen fish, crustaceans, and mollusks. Demand for high-value products, including salmon and lobster remains strong. Bucking a trend of lower exports of many U.S. commodities to China, U.S. seafood exports rose 2.9 percent year-on-year in volume and 1.5 percent in value in 2023.
