New report: Breaking into France's dynamic seafood market

One of Europe's strongest seafood markets, France is seeing increased consumption and changing demographics.

The French seafood market is one of the most dynamic and important markets in Europe. But while much of the market clings to seafood traditions, other critical segments of the market are changing.

Consumption of seafood in this nation of 66 million is 34 kilograms per capita, up from 30 kilograms in 2000.

France ranks third in seafood consumption in Europe, behind Spain (45kg) and Portugal (56kg) and well above the European average of 25kg per capita.
