Yearly data on apparent consumption are calculated by using the supply balance sheet, which is based on the equation: Apparent consumption = [(total catches - industrial catches) + aquaculture + imports] - exports. Sources of data are:

  • For catches, EUROSTAT
  • For aquaculture, EUROSTAT, Member States' administrations, FAO and FEAP
  • For import-export, EUROSTAT-COMEXT
