Netherlands: The 2019 Dutch Seafood Industry Report

The Netherlands is increasingly becoming one of Europe’s leading importers and exporters of seafood products. The United States was the Netherlands’ 13th largest supplier of seafood in 2018; imports totaled 21,000 MT or 3 percent of total imports. Trade was dominated by frozen Alaskan pollock (AP) which represented 74 percent of U.S. seafood trade. Seafood consumption in the Netherlands is slowly growing due to a larger assortment in supermarkets and product innovation by seafood companies. Growth opportunities for U.S. exporters of seafood can be found in all three segments: seafood processing industry, food retail sector and foodservice-HRI industry.
