Amer­i­cans ate more seafood last year than they did in 2014

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES - By Patrick Whittle

The av­er­age American ate nearly a pound more seafood in 2015 than he or she did the pre­vi­ous year, the fed­eral gov­ern­ment said on Wed­nes­day.

The Na­tional Oceanic and At­mo­spheric Ad­min­is­tra­tion re­leased the statis­tic along with its an­nual Fish­eries of the United States re­port. It said per capita con­sump­tion of seafood grew from 14.6 pounds in 2014 to 15.5 pounds in 2015.

The growth brought per capita con­sump­tion of seafood to its high­est point since 2010, and it’s also the big­gest jump of its kind in at least 25 years.
