The Vancouver area has been on the front lines of the global wave of global seafood consumption and production.
In 2017, the region recorded nearly 8.5 million tonnes of seafood imports, a rise of nearly 5 per cent from the year before.
The region also reported more than 13 million tonnes exported from its coast and inland waters, up more than 7 per cent year-over-year.
And that’s just the seafood sector.
Other seafood-related industries have also been booming.
A decade ago, the seafood industry accounted for just under 10 per cent of the province’s gross domestic product.
That has increased to almost 22 per cent today.
The province’s economy, which is projected to grow by 5.4 per cent over the next decade, is also being transformed by the growth of the world’s demand for seafood.
In fact, according to the International Salmon Centre, global demand for fish, including seafood products, is set to triple in the next 20 years.
A growing global appetite for seafood has made the region even more attractive for seafood producers to locate.
And in recent years, the booming global appetite has made Vancouver’s waterfront a breeding ground for new seafood production and distribution.
That’s why the city’s new “Boom” program has created a number of opportunities for Vancouver’s seafood industry.
The program is designed to attract and nurture seafood businesses that are focused on sustainability, environmental protection, local production, and the highest standards of animal welfare.
In the first phase of the boom, the city will host five major food festivals this year.
There will be an exhibition and food festival at the City of Vancouver, a seafood festival at West Coast Plaza, an aquarium fish and shell show, a fish and chip shop and seafood farm, a market for seafood in the city, and an aquarium farm at the South Beach Marina.
The second phase of this initiative will be hosted by the Vancouver Aquarium on the shores of the Fraser River.
The third phase will be led by the Canadian Association of Seafood Producers, a national trade association that represents more than 700,000 Canadian seafood processors.
The fourth phase will see the Vancouver Seafood Alliance, which will host three different seafood events a year, and will also provide support for local seafood producers.
Finally, the fifth phase will include the production of a new seafood-focused restaurant at the Aquarium, with the goal of creating a new dining experience for those looking for a more traditional seafood experience.
In addition to the Vancouver area, the Boom program is being expanded in other regions around the world, including the United States, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.
For more information on the Vancouver Food Industry, visit:The boom of Vancouver’s sea food industry is being driven by the demand for fresh, local seafood and the industry’s success in attracting investment and talent.
In particular, the boom is driven by strong demand from Asian consumers, who are increasingly willing to pay more for a better quality product.
And with growing demand for regional seafood products in China and other emerging markets, the demand is growing in other parts of the Pacific Northwest.
In 2018, the U.S. exported an estimated 8.7 million tonnes to Canada, more than the number of shipments from the U.
“Worldwide, the total value of seafood exports is estimated to be $6.6 trillion.
