Europe Dominates the Global Market

Europe is the leading consumer of herring fish in the world. Due to its occurrence in abundance in the North Atlantic, Baltic, and the North Sea, herring fish is increasingly caught and consumed in Europe, where it is considered a staple fish for over 2000 years. Besides being inexpensive, herring is also a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids, and owing to its relative ease of production and longer shelf life achieved through pickling and marination, it has become a popular fish in both the rich and poor households of Europe. Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, and Germany are major herring fish markets in Europe. In Sweden, the Baltic herring is fermented to create Surstomming, which is a delicacy in northern Swedish cuisine.

Europe's dominance in the herring fish market can be attributed to several factors, including a long history of herring fishing, well-developed infrastructure for processing and distribution, and a strong culinary tradition that values herring as a nutritious and versatile food source.

Herring is considered a traditional staple fish in the European region. The desire to conserve this tradition but limited time availability due to increasing urbanization has driven commercial adoption of herring in Norway and Poland Especially. Overall, the market is pretty much established in this region and will grow at a steady pace in the forecast period.
