2014 Annual NOAA "Fisheries of the United States" Report

Each year, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) compiles key fisheries statistics from the previous year into an annual report entitled, "Fisheries of the United States." The report documents fishing's importance to the nation. Inside the newly released 2014 report, NOAA provides landings totals for both domestic commercial and recreational fishing by species, U.S. aquaculture statistics, world fisheries, processed seafood production, foreign trade, and per capita consumption.

Some of the report highlights are:

  • Edible fish and shellfish landings in the 50 states were over 7.8 billion pounds (3.5 million metric tons) in 2014—a decrease of 225 million pounds (102,163 metric tons) compared with 2013.
  • In 2013, estimated freshwater plus marine U.S. aquaculture production was 662 million pounds with a value of $1.37 billion, an increase of 68 million pounds (11%) in volume and 140 million (11%) in value from 2012. Atlantic salmon was the leading species for marine finfish aquaculture, with 41.6 million pounds produced essentially unchanged from 2012. Atlantic salmon produced was valued at $105 million (up 36%). Oysters have the highest volume for marine shellfish production (44 million pounds, up 26%).
  • U.S. imports of edible fishery products in 2014 were valued at $20.2 billion, an increase of $2.1 billion (11.8%) from 2013. The quantity of edible imports was 5.6 billion pounds, up 49.0 million pounds (1%).
  • U.S. exports of edible fishery products were 3.4 billion pounds valued at $5.8 billion, an increase of 78.1 million pounds (2.4%) over 2013. Value increased $169 million (3.0%).
  • Estimated U.S. per capita consumption of fish and shellfish was 14.6 pounds (edible meat) in 2014. This total was essentially unchanged from the 14.5 pounds consumed in 2013.

NOAA has also posted "Fisheries Economics of the United States" for 2013. The report highlights the positive far-reaching economic impact of the seafood and recreational fisheries industries on the U.S. economy. The 2014 version of "Fisheries Economics of the United States" will be released within the next few months.
