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.
