Abstract: Game meat (wild meat) is con­stant­ly present in the Euro­pean meat mar­ket, but a lim­it­ed num­ber of con­sumers are inter­est­ed in its con­sump­tion, giv­en the unique char­ac­ter­is­tics of meat from wild ani­mals. Game meat pro­duc­tion in Europe decreased almost 9 times in 2020, reach­ing a total pro­duc­tion of about 13.5 thou­sand tons, while nation­al­ly there was a grow­ing trend until 2017 when it record­ed pro­duc­tion of 4,544 tons, an increase of 12% com­pared to 2005. The pur­pose of this paper is to ana­lyze the total pro­duc­tion of game meat in nation­al, Euro­pean, and EU coun­tries, as well as the analy­sis of the import and export of game meat from Roma­nia, Europe, and the EU. The data used are pro­vid­ed by the Inter­na­tion­al Food and Agri­cul­ture Orga­ni­za­tion (FAO) data­base, on the basis of which the men­tioned indi­ca­tors were ana­lyzed.
