Abstract: The report presents the results of an analysis of the characteristics and evolution of EU seafood trade in the period 2001-2012. The focus of the analysis is on a long term seafood trade patterns. The report aims to establish a link between the annual economic reports of the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF) and the short term price and trade analyses already regularly provided by the European Market Observatory for fisheries and aquaculture (EUMOFA). The report is structured in the following main sections: International context, EU overview, Examples of trade trends from the national analyses, National chapters. The analyses consist of a description of trade balance, import and export by country, year, main commercial species and preservation and processing groupings. In addition the following three indices were used to describe specific aspects of the trade patterns: Trade Competition Ratio (TCR), used to measure the exposure of domestic production to trade competition the extent of openness to trade of country; Normalised Revealed Comparative Advantage (NRCA), used to measure the competitive advantage of the export of country for a given product; Margin of exports growth, used to measure how a country is increasing its exports either by expanding existing trade relations or by getting access to new markets. The data used for the analyses covers world seafood export and import in value and volume for the period 2001-2012 extracted from COMEXT and COMTRADE.
