The article offers a look at the increase in demand for seafood in the U.S. Figures from the National Fisheries Institute indicate that consumption is up 11% since 2001, 16.5 pounds per person in 2006 compared to 14.8 pounds five years earlier. Although health professionals applaud the trend, the increased demand poses some purchasing challenges for restaurant kitchens.
