Per Capita Shrimp Consumption Drops 9.5%

 

Higher prices for seafood have taken a brutal toll on per capita consumption of fishery products in the United States.  A decline in shrimp consumption has been the biggest single factor in the decline.  Shrimp consumption has declined from 4.2 to 3.8 pounds per person, a drop of 9.5%, the lowest per capita volume since 2002.
