Aquaculture, Fish and Seafood

Aquaculture is playing important role in Croatian fisheries. Farming of aquatic organisms in the Republic of Croatia comprises of marine aquaculture and farming in fresh (inland) waters. Marine aquaculture includes farming of finfish, pelagic fish and shellfish. Total production reaches around 12.000 tons annually, with a total value of some EUR 120 million.

Although Croatia is a net-exporter of fish and seafood products, it imports a significant quantity as well.  Annually, Croatia imports over EUR 76 million in fish and seafood. The demand for fresh-water fish and seafood is expected to increase with modern changes in nutritional habits and increased demand from tourism.
