The State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture 2010
Quicklink :
Against a backdrop of global economic uncertainty, this issue of The State
of World Fisheries and Aquaculture highlights the major role and challenges
facing fisheries and aquaculture worldwide. With a steadily rising demand
for fish and fish products, the supply of fish as human food hit a record
high in 2008, underlining its significance in contributing to food security
and nutrition as a source of high-quality, affordable animal protein in
particular. International trade in fish also topped previous values,
pointing to the sector's continued important contribution to economic
expansion and human well-being. Aquaculture, despite a falling growth rate
in recent years, remains the fastest-growing animal-food-producing sector
and is set to overtake capture fisheries as a source of food fish. Overall
production of the sector continues to grow. This publication analyses and
reviews the latest available global statistics and trends in fisheries and
aquaculture. It explores the important, yet often underestimated, role of
inland fisheries, particularly in many small communities where they make a
vital contribution to poverty alleviation and livelihood security. A broader
look at the issues affecting fisheries and aquaculture emphasizes the
growing need to focus on the many facets of policy and governance and
examines the impacts of climate change, biodiversity loss, quality
certification and product traceability on the sector
