GLOBE - The future of the tuna industry depends largely on the development of successful aquaculture, according to a new Glitnir seafood industry report.

The report shows that the global catch of tuna has stagnated and the stocks of the most popular subspecies are currently either fully exploited or even in a stage of depletion.

Glitnir, the globally leading supplier of financial services to the seafood industry, releases its new report on the tuna industry today. The report provides an analytical overview of the current main developments in the tuna industry worldwide.

Tuna is the fourth largest fisheries product in terms of international trade. Found in all major oceans, and a popular seafood all over the world, tuna's main markets are the USA, Europe and Japan. The country with the highest tuna consumption is Spain, with a per capita consumption of 3.3 kg/year.
