Sandfish, also known as Holothuria scabra, refers to a fish species of sea cucumber that is commonly found in the Asia-Pacific region. It mainly inhabits in shallow tropical waters. Sandfish is either consumed raw or in a processed dried form called bêche-de-mer. It acts as a rich source of numerous vitamins and minerals, such as zinc, protein, calcium, magnesium, etc. As a result, sandfish finds widespread applications in dietary supplements, cuisines, functional food and beverages, pharmaceutical products, etc.
Sandfish Market Trends:
The rising consumer health consciousness along with the escalating demand for protein-rich food products is primarily driving the global sandfish market. Sandfish contains a high amount of essential amino acids and bioactive components, such as mucopolysaccharides and chondroitin sulfate, which aid in reducing the risk of numerous lifestyle-related disorders. Additionally, the growing utilization of sandfish in traditional medicines to treat a variety of diseases, such as cancer, joint ailments, liver-related disorders, etc., is creating a positive outlook for the market. Besides this, the emerging popularity of inter-continental dishes and the inflating preferences for gourmet seafood cuisines are further bolstering the market growth. Moreover, the increasing demand for organic sandfish owing to the rising incidences of food-borne illnesses caused by pathogens commonly found in conventionally-cultured seafood products is acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. In line with this, the introduction of numerous favorable government initiatives to promote sandfish farming practices is further catalyzing the global market. Various government bodies are also offering attractive incentives and launching campaigns to educate the farmers regarding the benefits of organic farming.
