Global Groundfish Market: Overview

The market for groundfish has been recently evolving rapidly. Since 2000, significant stimulus in groundfish fishery has been driven by adoption of sustainable fisheries and concurrent rebounding of their numbers. Increasing interest of sustainable fishing companies in various groundfish species has helped fuel the prospects. That apart, heightened awareness of people about the rebounding back of commercial fisheries in coastal towns has been stirring consumer demand for groundfish. The fishing community, local organizations, and seafood companies have benefitted from growth in commercial quotas and revising of annual catch limits. As fish farming becomes more sustainable, restaurants and families will likely benefit from the increasing share of groundfish in seafood menus in various parts of the world, propelling strides in the groundfish market. 

Global Groundfish Market: Notable Developments

A spate of developments are recently fueled by favorable government policies especially in the U.S. 

  • A case in point is the grant of exempted fishing permits (EFPs) for groundfish vessels in West Coast of the United States in May 2019. These EPFs have been granted for a short period as trial to revive interest of fishing vessels in groundfish. The program is supported by NOAA Fisheries to enable the sustainable fisheries to take full advantage of rising numbers of groundfish in the West Coast. On the other hand, this will also help protect other endangered species, notably salmon, against overfishing. To this end, the organization will garner the gains from rebuilding campaign of the rockfish. 
  • In another favorable event distributors of processed and frozen groundfish have been looking to seafood companies that strive to excel in quality. A Portland-headquartered company Bristol Seafood has recently decided that it will offer frozen cod and haddock fillets. The company uses Individual Quick Freezing processing technology to meet the highest standard of quality. The processed groundfish will soon be available in the U.S. and also be exported to certain areas. 

Companies are expected to increasingly benefit from increased awareness about utilizing the strengths of sustainable fisheries for growing population of groundfish.
