Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/20/2014 -- The US fish and shellfish category grew moderately between 2009 and 2014, reaching $16.7 billion, and is expected to continue growing at this pace into 2019, reaching $20.1 billion. Sales are largely driven by consumer perceptions that fish and shellfish are healthier than other meats, although consumers surveyed by Mintel are most apt to cite taste as the number one reason for eating fish/shellfish. Brands should continue to focus on taste and nutrition to drive sales, emphasizing specific attributes such as high omega-3 content and improved flavor ranges.
