Salmon has become a popular food choice for Chinese consumers. For more information on export to China, please call SINOLOBEN, service Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
From SeafoodNews, March 29, 2018 - In 2018, salmon consumption per capita in China was only 40 grams, far lower than that of South Korea and Japan. With the rapid growth of Chinese household income and the increasing preference of middle-class consumers for this healthy food, salmon consumption has gradually become a hot food choice for Chinese consumers.
Due to the New Crown epidemic, China's salmon imports decreased to 40,600 tons in 2020 and rebounded 31.23% from 2020 to 53,300 tons in 2021, with imports increasing 79.71% to $586 million. 74,200 tons of salmon will be imported into China in 2019, with a CAGR of 31% from 2016-2019.
Among all overseas suppliers, Norway is the largest supplier, with exports to China increasing by 45.06% to 25,100 tons in 2021, accounting for 46.99% of China's total imports. Shanghai is the largest consumer of salmon, with 28,500 tons of imports in 2021, followed by Guangdong with 12,700 tons, then Zhejiang and Beijing with 5,500 and 4,700 tons, respectively.
In addition to imports, China has also started farming salmon, as exemplified by "Deep Blue One", a RMB 115 million project that is expected to produce 300,000 salmon, or more than 1,500 tons, with an annual production value of more than RMB 100 million.
In 2018, the world's largest fully submersible intelligent net tank, "Deep Blue One", funded by Wanze Feng Fisheries Co., designed by China Ocean University and Hubei Institute of Marine Engineering Equipment, and built by Wusheng Heavy Industry, was opened for the Yellow Sea Cold Water Group salmon farming project.
