7 June 5:31 A.M., California/Marketwire/ - According to the new market research report, with COVID-19 having a damaging impact on Aquaculture, the market is expected to lose steam before recovering to reach a projected global market size of US$245.1 billion by 2027. Stringent lockdown measures imposed by governments worldwide to control the spread of the pandemic have cast a shadow on food and nutrition security. Global food supply chains are severely disrupted as governments move swiftly to implement trade restrictions to protect domestic food supplies, a move that has and continues to impact countries dependent on food imports. Fish and aquatic food value chain is currently witnessing a medley of challenges ranging from shutdown of operations, changing consumer demands, market access and logistical problems, and transportation and border restrictions.

Aquaculture has long benefited from continuous mismanagement of ocean resources, the resulting deterioration in the biological productivity of the ocean to meet surging global demand for seafood, and the ensuing focus on fish farming to bridge the supply demand gap. In the post-COVID-19 period, the growing emphasis laid on immunity boosting foods will spur popularity of salmon supported by numerous health benefits such as rich content of Omega-3 fatty acids vital for heart and brain health, protein vital for muscle health, Carotenes & Astaxanth in which are powerful anti-oxidants that fight cancer, potassium and Vitamin B 12 and B6, and Selenium, a mineral that is vital in the health of the thyroid gland. Norway and Chile currently rank as the world's largest producers of farmed salmon accounting for over 20% of global production. Easy breeding in sea cages and high market prices make Atlantic Salmon the most important species of salmon worldwide in terms of volume production cornering a 70% share of wild and farmed salmon produced. Other major growth factors to watch out for during the post-crisis period include research-based innovation and advancement of aquaculture technologies; improving eco-friendliness of land based fish farms; development of potent fish food and feed, water cleaning mechanisms and large-scale aquaponics systems; significant improvements in distribution, logistics, and transportation; increasing preference for nutritious and protein-rich seafood as a primary source of vitamins, minerals and essential fats; rise of organic aquaculture supported by rising consumer preference for natural foods.
