Shrimp is probably the most popular farm-raised seafood in the world. This is due to the fact that the farm-raised shrimp industry is increasing by 16% per year. Indeed, shrimp consumption has increased 92% between 1987 and 2006. The growth in shrimp aquaculture has been fueled by countries such as China, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Thailand. As for actual fish, it is most likely salmon, since although tuna is second in annual fish consumption, most tuna is caught in the wild, while most salmon is farmed.
The most popular farm fish in the world is salmon. The United States alone currently imports over 200,000 tons of farmed salmon annually. This is a problem because the FDA rarely tests these salmon for diseases and contaminants. Farm raised salmon contain less nutrients, more chemicals, and are artificially colored to make their sale more appealing.
