California Seafood Council


Welcome to the California Seafood Council web page! Seafood is important to California and its residents. Studies indicate that Californians consume far more seafood per capita than the national average, making the Golden State one of the most important seafood markets in the United States. Our state fishing industry ranks among the top five seafood producing states in the nation (472 million pounds in 1999). The economic value of this industry to the Golden State is estimated at more than $800 million annually.
