The global fishmeal market is expected to reach: US$10.31 billion by 2027. Fish meal is a global word for a nutrient-rich meal ingredient used primarily in pet diets, and occasionally used as a high-quality organic fertilizer. Fishmeal can be made from almost any type of seafood, but is generally made from wild-caught, small marine fish with a high percentage of bones and oil and is usually considered unfit for direct human consumption. In addition, nutritionists recognize fishmeal as a high-quality, highly digestible feed ingredient that is preferred in the diet of most farm animals, especially fish and shrimp.

China dominates the fishmeal landscape of the importing countries:
In China, the farmers provide protein-rich fishmeal in their aquatic systems; therefore global developments in the shrimp farming industry are encouraging the import of high quality fishmeal. In addition, limited supply and strict fishing restrictions allow regional companies to develop safer and more productive methods of collecting and selling fishmeal, which slows down the overall import growth in the provinces of China. Further, with the rising demand for marine by-products and seafood in the country, fishmeal suppliers in China focus on improving quality, productivity and sustainability.
