World's 100 Largest Seafood Companies 2018

Find out who the leading players are in the seafood industry with this unique report listing the sector's largest firms.

This latest 300-page edition of Undercurrent News' annual ranking gives an overview of the largest companies in the seafood industry, ranked by the size of their 2017 or latest available revenue figure, in US dollar equivalent.

The report is an invaluable sales tool for anyone working in or with the seafood industry.

When combined, the top 100 seafood companies in the world had sales of more than $101 billion in 2017, up 9% from the previous year.

This latest edition welcomes seven firms that didn't appear in last year's ranking, a result in some cases of new information coming to light, of mergers and acquisitions, and movements in prices.

The geographical makeup for the 2018 list is largely similar to previous years, with some important differences.

Japanese companies, many of which are owned by huge conglomerates that dabble in seafood, took up 23 spots on this ranking. 

Despite their executives’ outsized ambitions and the indisputably impressive scale of their infrastructure investments, Chinese firms still have a way to go to catch up. However, they are making big strides - the six Chinese firms that made the ranking this year are among the fastest growing in our report.

Unsurprisingly, given the sustained upswing in farmed Atlantic prices, Chilean and Norwegian salmon farmers and traders continue to do well in our ranking, too, with even a salmon farmer from another continent making it on to the list for the first time this year.

Broken down by activity, however, wild-catch companies still outnumber those active in aquaculture by a comfortable margin.

Get more details on all of these trends and much more in our report, which includes:

  • A ranking of the world's 100 largest companies
  • An introduction describing the trends that have affected the sector and shaped the industry
  • Charts showing a breakdown by country, sector, ownership and farmed species
  • Entries on each company, listing key details, followed by a description, a summary of the latest events and trends, and analysis
