Market Dynamics

Driver: Increasing consumption of fish

The consumption of fish products has increased globally due to the growing awareness about its health benefits. Especially in Asian countries, fish consumption has increased vastly due to the increased per capita income and rise of the fishing industry. Consumers around the globe include fish products in several types of diets as they have high protein content, which is vital for healthy skin and hair growth. Further, the distribution channel of such products has strengthened over the years, which has resulted in a stable supply chain. The seafood industry has gained momentum with increasing urbanization. Also, the preservation technologies of fish products have improved with the introduction of advanced equipment in the food and beverage industry. Apart from domestic consumption, the export of fish products has increased among various regions.

Restraint: Use of excessive chemicals

The use of excessive chemicals in aquaculture might negatively impact human health. The fish are treated using large amounts of fertilizers and chemicals, influencing consumers’ health. The consumption of these fish can eventually deteriorate the health of the consumer. The incidence of food poisoning is increasing owing to the use of harmful chemicals in fish breeding.

Opportunity: Increasing focus on aquaculture

Aquaculture exhibits tremendous potential in the current era of food insecurity to feed not only the ever-growing human population but also to use aquaculture products as feed ingredients in the diets of various domesticated animals with significant economic value. Aquaculture has a bright future due to global advancements and its strategic role in food security. The aquaculture business has evolved into a cutting-edge, vibrant sector that generates secure and high-quality goods and has created the infrastructure to be environmentally sustainable. Aquaculture has recently produced significant social benefits, including higher revenue, nutritional standards, employment, etc. In the next 25 years, this might quadruple in the developing world, and the dependence on imports from rich countries to underdeveloped ones will increase.

Challenge: Ecological damage

Large amounts of wastewater can be produced by fish farms using chemicals, which may have an impact nearby. The construction of aquaculture infrastructure will impact the local flora and wildlife, including wetlands and mangroves. Untreated sewage dumped in the area with a high organic load will harm the ecology. Exotic species farming would introduce new pathogens to the environment.
