With Rabobank predicting Chinese seafood imports on track to triple by 2020 to $24 billion China, already the world’s largest seafood consumer, will increasingly import expensive seafood species from overseas while also continuing to increase aquaculture production at home. Where is this new supply likely to come from and how will Chinese demand impact on the sustainability of world fisheries resources? These questions will be addressed by Peter Redmayne, president of Sea Fare Expositions, Inc., the overseas co-organizer of this week’s China Fisheries & Seafood Expo, held in Dalian.
