Salmon Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023
Salmon belong to the family Salmonidae and are found in the northern Atlantic and Pacific oceans. They are anadromous, this means that most types of salmon are born in fresh water, migrate to the sea, and then again return back to freshwater to reproduce. These fish have eight fins all together including a tail, also known as caudal fin, which helps them to move easily. Salmon are capable of jumping over four metres to climb waterfalls and stay clear of the obstacles in the water. They are unique in nature as compared to other commercially harvested fish as they swim upstream through the estuaries and into the freshwater for the purpose of reproducing. Salmon can be used for grilling, broiling, poaching, pickling, roasting, smoking as well as for a variety of food preparations such as burgers, tartar, salads and several pasta dishes. According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Salmon Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2018-2023”, the global salmon market reached a volume of 3.6 Million Tons in 2017.
