The annual world fish catch is about 90 million tons. About 75% are salt water fish and 25% fresh water fish.
America's Food by Harvey Blatt (2008)

The United States imports about 3 Billion pounds of fish each year to meet consumer demand. (USDA 2004)

25 years ago large Atlantic bluefin tuna (250 to over 1,000 pounds) might sell for a penny a pound for catfood, if it sold at all.  Today, that same bluefin tuna can sell for well over $100 per pound, mainly due to the popularity of sushi and sashimi around the world.

In 2001 a 440 pound bluefin sold for $173,600 in the Japanese Tsukiji fish market - thats about $394 per pound!

More than 90% of all fish caught are caught in the northern hemisphere.

About 10% of the world fish catch is cod.

If white wine goes with fish, do white grapes go with sushi?
