The report states that globally rising awareness about the importance of omega-3 fatty acids - of which fish oil is a primary source - for several purposes in the human body, is an important driver of the global market for fish oil. As the daily dietary intake of omega-3 increases across the globe, the demand for fish oil will also increase. However, the market is limited to a certain extent due to the static or reduced global production of fish oil in the past years.

The report segments the global fish oil market into chief application areas for fish oil, varieties of fish oil according to different species of fishes, and key regional markets.

The segment of application areas includes aquaculture, direct human consumption, and hydrogenated and industrial purposes. The market segment of fish species is comprised of marine fish, salmon and trout, tilapias, carps, herrings, mackerels, and eels.

The report states that the application segment of aquaculture, where fish oil is used in fish feed, accounted for over 75% share of the global demand for fish oil in 2011. Most of the global consumption of fish oil is from trout and salmon fish farms in Peru and Chile. The segment of direct human consumption of fish oil appears is a distant second in the overall fish oil market.
