2009, 192 с. (A4)
The State of the World Fisheries and Aquaculture presents a world review of fisheries and aquaculture, including trends and statistics. It highlights issues debated worldwide and profiles future scenarios, providing the most current global view and perspective on fisheries and aquaculture. This issue features some aspects of fisheries and aquaculture that may receive increasing attention. These include 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. A useful resource for policy makers, economists, environmentalists, researchers and students, and fish trade and industry managers. Also published in Arabic, Chinese, French, Russian, and Spanish.
The 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.
