About 30 years ago, in 1983, the amount of consumption was 1.03 million tons, but in 2014, 30 years later, it decreased to less than half, to 470,000 tons.
The reasons for this may be (1) the removal of fish from young people, (2) the decrease in population, and (3) the increase in a wide variety of fast foods.
