Spain: Spain Seafood Report 2024

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   SP2024-0004
Spain is one of the world’s largest markets for fish and seafood. In 2023, Spain was the fourth largest importer of fish and seafood in the world after the United States, China, and Japan. It not only has the largest fish processing industry in Europe, but also has a high per capita consumption and a high per capita expenditure on fish and seafood products. However, Spanish commercial fishing and aquaculture are insufficient to meet domestic demand for fish and seafood production and imports remain a key element in meeting that deficit. As such, Spain continues to create opportunities for U.S. fish and seafood. This report provides guidance to U.S. companies interested in exporting seafood products to Spain and includes an overview of the country's sector, market structure, and export requirements.
