17 th Place. The United States ranks 17 th in the world’s total aquaculture production. A compelling case can be made for growing more seafood domestically; the U.S. imports 90 percent (by value) of its seafood, more than half of which is grown via aquaculture in other countries, and Americans are the industry’s third largest consumer in the world.
