This flagship publication of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, presents a world review of fisheries and aquaculture, including trends and statistics. It highlights issues debated worldwide and profiles future scenarios with a view to providing the most current global view and perspective on fisheries and aquaculture.
This issue of The State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture features some aspects that may receive increasing attention: climate change, the use of marine genetic resources in areas beyond national jurisdiction, and the proliferation of private standards and certification schemes in the international fish trade. This report also highlights some of FAO's special studies. Among these are the use of wild-fishery resources as seed and feed in aquaculture, and reviews of the world's shrimp fisheries and of the management of marine capture fisheries in the Pacific Ocean.
This report is accompanied by the latest edition of the FAO World Fisheries and Aquaculture Atlas CD-ROM, a comprehensive and global view of marine and inland capture fisheries and aquaculture.
