A strong rebound in the value of global seafood trade flows as the world emerges from the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to continue in 2022, senior Rabobank analyst Gorjan Nikolik told IntraFish.

Global seafood trade flows added $13 billion (€12 billion) of trade in 2021, driven by growing demand for high-value seafood in the United States, EU, and China, Rabobank researchers found as they drew up their latest global seafood trade flows map.

Trade flows map the buying and selling of goods and services between countries, and measure the amount of goods one country sells to other countries minus the amount of goods that a country buys from other countries.
