U.S. seafood consumption

In the United States, seafood is not nearly as popular as meat, and the two are often considered substitutes for each other. On average, American households purchase fresh seafood about 4.3 times per year, compared to 27 purchases of meat per year. According to a January 2018 survey, 55 percent of Americans living in the Northeastern United States frequently eat seafood at home. The Midwestern United States had the lowest consumption of seafood during that time.

Seafood landings in the U.S.

Seafood landings refer to the amount of fish and seafood caught by a country. In the United States, commercial fish and shellfish landings amounted to approximately 9.9 billion pounds in 2017. In that year, Pollock was the species of fish with the highest level of fishery landings. Menhaden and Salmon came in second and third, respectively.
