爱尔兰螃蟹业瞄准中国市场。

通过爱尔兰海洋渔业理事会 (BIM) 海产品发展局和爱尔兰食品局的帮助,爱尔兰的许多主要海产品公司参加了本周在大连举办的中国国际渔业博览会。

A total of twelve Irish seafood companies exhibited on the ' Ireland ' stand, marking Ireland's largest ever national pavilion at a seafood trade fair in Asia . These included Mc Bride Fishing, Sofrimar, William Carr and Sons, Shellfish De Le Mer, Atlanfish and Rockabill Shellfish.

Attracting over 15,000 visitors, the China Fisheries and Seafood Expo is a key seafood trade show in what is an increasingly important market for Ireland.

Traditionally, the Irish Seafood Sector has concentrated on key markets in France , the UK and Germany with a smaller niche markets in Asia . However, with an ever increasing population and middle class dynamic, China offers the Irish Seafood Sector the potential for real growth. Total exports of Irish seafood to China in 2011 were €2.9 million.

Latest data up to July 2012, details exports at €5.3 million. This equates to an 80% increase on 2011 before year end. This dramatic increase demonstrates the new business relationships Ireland has developed with key Chinese buyers in recent years. Trade in pelagic seafood accounts for €2.1 million of total exports in 2011 and €4.7 million of exports for year to date in 2012. The demand for premium Irish Shellfish, mainly crab and crustaceans, is also growing solidly and expected to be valued at over €1 million during 2012.
