Fisheries and aquaculture make crucial contributions to the world's wellbeing and prosperity. In the last five decades, world fish food supply has outpaced global population growth, and today fish constitutes an important source of nutritious food and animal protein for much of the world's population.

Fish and fishery products are among the most traded food commodities worldwide, with trade volumes and values reaching new highs in 2011 and expected to carry on rising, with developing countries continuing to account for the bulk of world exports. While capture fisheries production remains stable, aquaculture production keeps on expanding. Aquaculture is set to remain one of the fastest-growing animal food-producing sectors.

Status of these 2 sectors is presented in 4 parts:

  • World review of fisheries and aquaculture
  • Selected issues in fisheries and aquaculture
  • Highlights of special studies, with a focus on MPA: a tool for the ecosystem approach to fisheries.
