Sales of plant-based seafood in the US market increased 14 percent in 2021 to $13.9 million (€12.6 million), but the category's growth slowed from the 24 percent sales expansion seen from 2019 to 2020, according to new data released Thursday by the the Good Food Institute (GFI) and the Plant Based Foods Association (PBFA).

Dollar sales of plant-based shellfish, which include shrimp, scallops and crab, grew 30 percent, and plant-based fish sales grew 9 percent. The report did not provide data on unit sales performance of the products.
