Tide to Table
According to NOAA's report, Fisheries Economics of the United States, 2011, The Seafood Industry-harvesters, seafood processors and dealers, seafood wholesalers and retailers-generated $129 billion in sales impacts, $37 billion in income impacts and supported 1.2 million jobs in 2011.
Recreational fishing generated 470 billion in sales impacts, $20 billion in income impacts, and supported 455,00 jobs in 2011.
Key to the report are the economic effects-jobs, sales, income, and value added to Gross National Product--of the industry. "economic impact" measures how sales in each sector ripple throughout the state and national economy as each dollar spent generates additional sales by other firms and consumers.
