The federal official noted that public policies implemented by the President of the Republic, Enrique Peña Nieto, have boosted consumer promotion of domestic marine and aquaculture products which has allowed the six-year goal of increasing annual per capita consumption of seafood by 3.1 kg, to be reached in three years.
