09 Aug Seafood : On the Roar in the Middle East
The Middle East, generally imagined as an arid region, is actually surrounded by seven seas. This definitely shows that the area is not short of sources of fresh seafood.
The Middle East is displaying a fast-paced growth in adapting to and consuming seafood so much so that it has gone beyond the global average. Powering the 2.17% of the total worldwide seafood production are:
- Economic development
- Increased tourism
- Increasing appeal of healthy proteins
- Effective supply chain distribution
UAE alone consumes almost double the global average. Egypt is the leading producer, supplying 40% of the total volume, followed by The Islamic Republic of Iran (21%), Turkey (19%), Yemen (6%), and Oman (5%). Moreover, local consumers enjoy fish varieties like sardines, mackerel, tuna and barracuda. Seafood imports like scallops, shrimp, lobsters and caviar have also increased.
