Global greater forkbeard production
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), greater forkbeard production has increased significantly in recent years. In 2016, global production reached 990,000 tonnes, an increase of nearly 50% compared to the previous year. The vast majority of this increase was due to increased production in China, which accounted for more than 80% of the total global production in 2016.
In addition to China, other major producers of greater forkbeards include Japan, Korea, and Russia. Together, these four countries accounted for more than 95% of the total global production in 2016.
The increased demand for greater forkbeards is being driven by the growing popularity of sushi and sashimi in many parts of the world. In addition, greater forkbeard is a popular ingredient in many traditional Asian dishes. As the demand for greater forkbeards continues to grow, it is likely that global production will continue to increase in the years to come.
