Aquaculture Data

NOTE: Updates to this data product are discontinued.

Statistics on domestically grown catfish and trout, and U.S. imports and exports of fish and shellfish that may be products of aquaculture, such as salmon, shrimp, and oysters.

NOTE: Product lines reported in the aquaculture trade tables are based on ERS aggregations of 10-digit HTS (Harmonized Tariff Schedule) and Schedule B codes intended to encompass all of the product forms, types and varieties that are commonly associated with each particular aquaculture category. Updates to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule and to Schedule B are made routinely to account for new or discontinued products, product classifications, and definitions, and as a result, commodity aggregations must also be routinely reviewed. The following document contains the current HTS and Schedule B codes that ERS aggregates for imports and exports, respectively. ERS aquaculture trade codes.xls.

More information on current HTS codes is available on the U.S. International Trade Commission website, here. Schedule B codes for 2019 (from the U.S. Census Bureau) are available here.
