Global Fish Meal Market to Grow at 7.2% During 2023-2028, Bolstered by Expanding Aquaculture Sector

March 18, 2021 | Food & Beverages

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Fish Meal Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” finds that the fish meal market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.2% during 2023-2028. Fish meal refers to ground powder or feed ingredient made from the cooked flesh of fish. Species such as sardines, anchovy, capelin, menhaden, cod and haddock are some of the major fish meal sources. Fish meal contains a high level of proteins, lipids and minerals and is also rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs), digestible energy and vitamins. Nowadays, fish meal is available in the form of cakes and powder and helps provide high nutritional value for enhanced growth of livestock.

Global Fish Meal Market Trends:

The global fish meal market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for naturally sourced high-quality seafood products. The growing awareness regarding the health benefits associated with the consumption of fish meal, such as mitigating disease outbreaks, stimulating reproduction and boosting metabolism, is also contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the rising cases of chronic disorders due to the intake of lead, mercury, and cadmium during conventionally cultured seafood has shifted the preference of farmers toward fish meal, which serves as a natural protein source for aquatic animals. Furthermore, growing environmental concerns and rapid industrialization of meat and dairy production are escalating the demand for fish meal.
