    Report of the FAO Expert Workshop on Assessment and Monitoring of Aquaculture Sector Performance, Gaeta, Italy, 05-07 November 2012, FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Report, FIRA/R1063 2014

    Aquaculture is a fast growing sector with complex environmental, economic and social impacts. Assessment and monitoring of such impacts is essential for stakeholders in both the public and private sectors to conduct evidence-based policy-making and/or sector management. However, the lack of information and knowledge (especially quantitative indicators) about aquaculture sector performance has been a global and perennial issue. The issue is especially critical for regions with a less developed aq uaculture sector (e.g., Africa). Nearly 30 experts from different countries attended the FAO Expert Workshop on Assessment and Monitoring of Aquaculture Sector Performance with the aim of discussing the methodologies and techniques of, and share global, regional and national experiences in, assessing and monitoring the performance of aquaculture. The workshop includes 28 presentations under 6 thematic topics by experts from various disciplines. A user-friendly tool called World Aquaculture Perfo rmance Indicators (WAPI) was presented in the workshop. Three working groups were established to discuss issues related to assessment and monitoring of aquaculture’s social, economic and environmental performance. This report documents the information, knowledge and insights generated by the workshop

    Algae, including seaweeds and microalgae, contribute nearly 30 percent of world aquaculture production (measured in wet weight), primarily from seaweeds. Seaweeds and cmicroalgae generate socio-economic benefits to tens of thousands of households, primarily in coastal communities, including numerous women empowered by seaweed cultivation. Various human health contributions, environmental benefits and ecosystem services of seaweeds and microalgae have drawn increasing attention to untapped potential of seaweed and microalgae cultivation. Highly imbalanced production and consumption across geographic regions implies a great potential in the development of seaweed and microalgae cultivation. Yet joint efforts of governments, the industry, the scientific community, international organizations, civil societies, and other stakeholders or experts are needed to realize the potential. This document examines the status and trends of global algae production with a focus on algae cultivation, recognizes the algae sector’s existing and potential contributions and benefits, highlights a variety of constraints and challenges over the sector’s sustainable development, and discusses lessons learned and way forward to unlock full potential in algae cultivation and FAO’s roles in the process. From a balanced perspective that recognizes not only the potential of algae but also constraints and challenges upon the realization of the potential, information and knowledge provided by this document can facilitate evidence-based policymaking and sector management in algae development at the global, regional and national levels.
