Americans ate more seafood last year than they did in 2014
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.
