Wow, I am REALLY surprised China wasn't on the list. And I'm not surprised in the least that Iceland is in second. I can't think of many traditional dishes (as meals, not just solo ingredients) that don't involve some kind of seafood. Heck, you can easily buy minke whale on skewers and then there's the whole meaning of hvalraki ...

There are 1.3 billion people in the country, so China may eat a lot of fish in total but not per capita. And actually livestock and poultry make up the majority of meat ingredients in Chinese dishes. And for the inland regions seafood are really expensive, like twice as expensive as beef...

most of the consumption of whale meat in Iceland these days is by tourists who are looking for an "authentic cultural experience." They do fish a lot though--it's their top export (barely edging out aluminum).

He did say "top country" and not "citizens of the top country," didn't he?

... he also said "I eat more ALONE than the top country"... I don't even think this was a typo he was probably trying to make a joke about how much he likes fish.
