Seafood is high in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, and vitamin B, and low in saturated fats. It has been demonstrated that regular seafood eating enhances cardiovascular health and lowers the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Additionally, consumers’ willingness to explore new foods is increasing the demand for various flavored fish sauces, such as hot sauce and soy sauce.

On the production front, consistent nominal fish prices have resulted in increasing production of fish and fish sauce products. According to a joint OECD-FAO report, nominal fish prices are predicted to rise at a rate of 1.5-2.1 % per year over the next decade. This means that major manufacturers of fish sauce will have lower production costs, allowing them to produce on a larger scale.
