Just like other trends, food preferences change and evolve over time. In 2021, there has been a shift in what consumers are looking for in their seafood. While classic seafood like shrimp is still popular, consumers are seeking more transparency, convenience and health benefits when they order their seafood.
Here at USS Nemo, we’ve got the latest seafood news for you. Read on to see what’s trending this year.
5 New Seafood Trends
Check out five of the latest seafood trends you’re likely to start seeing and hearing more about in 2021.
1. Wild-Caught Seafood
The demand for wild-caught seafood has steadily increased over the years. In 2021, consumers favor seafood obtained from the wild versus farm-raised options. That said, they’re still choosing the more familiar types of wild-caught seafood like salmon, tilapia, tuna and crab.
2. Ethically and Sustainably Sourced Seafood
Consumers prefer ethically and sustainably sourced seafood as much as they favor wild-caught delicacies. Today’s seafood lovers are more health-conscious and desire more transparency in where and how their seafood was caught. There’s also a preference toward local seafood sourcing, which allows consumers to see exactly where their fish came from.
3. Frozen Fish
Frozen seafood is quick and easy to prepare — two qualities that 2021 consumers value. With all the frozen seafood options available today — ranging from shrimp to Alaskan salmon — consumers can enjoy their favorite morsels whenever they want without having to prepare and clean the fish.
4. Keto-Friendly Seafood
With keto still trending in 2021, keto-friendly seafood recipes have become more popular. These recipes are low in carbs and high in fat. To round off the meal, keto-friendly fish is often paired with plenty of meat, vegetables and cheese.
5. Fish-Free “Fish”
With so many plant-based meat alternatives available today, it’s no wonder that fish-free “fish” is becoming more popular. Vegetarians and vegans, as well as those worried about the mercury levels found in fish, can now enjoy their favorite seafood flavors without actually consuming fish.
