    Review of the state of world aquaculture 2003
    Also available in:

    This document is the second review of the Fisheries Circular 886 – Review of the State of World Aquaculture. Taking into consideration various reviews and analyses of aquaculture production, development and management published by FAO over the past few years, the format of the present revision of the Circular deviates slightly from the previous format. It includes a global review of aquaculture production and production trends, brief regional production profiles based on national aquaculture sta tistics received from FAO member countries up to 2000, an outlook for aquaculture development (major issues, opportunities and challenges), a summary of the FAO inland capture statistics (1970 to 2000) compared with aquaculture production, and a section discussing issues of current importance to global aquaculture development and management.

    FAO regularly conducts global and regional reviews of aquaculture status and trends, most recently during 2008 and 2009. The present regional review and synthesis for sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) provides an overview of major issues and trends in the aquaculture sector over the past few years. The regional review reflects development in 42 of the 55 countries in SSA for which production was reported to FAO in 2008. The production volume and value data have been derived from the latest FAO FISHSTAT Plus database for 2009. Between 1998 and 2008, there has been a five-fold increase in production from 42 587 to 238 877 tonnes. The greatest catalyst for increased production has been the emergence and intensification of private sector-led small- and medium-size enterprises and the expansion of large commercial ventures stimulated in some cases by growing public support and the inflow of foreign capital and expertise. In addition, the implementation of the FAO Special Programm e for Aquaculture Development in Africa (SPADA), as well as the introduction of new production systems, for example cages and tanks previously untried or unproven in SSA, accompanied by the refinement of existing production systems have contributed to this development. The bulk of the production (95 percent) is from fresh-water, predominantly of the indigenous and ubiquitous species of tilapia and the African catfishes. The regional review indicates that there are opportunities for i ntegrating aquaculture with other activities, for enhancing exports of high value species and for strengthening institutional capacity building. There is a need for research, technology development and investment to improve sustainability of existing farming systems. There is significant scope for improved human resources development, for better collaboration among farmers, and between science and practice and for international collaboration, within the region and with institutions and organizations outside the region. The draft version of this Circular was presented at the Global Conference on Aquaculture 2010 at Phuket, Bangkok, and the present document has benefited from inputs from different sources during the Conference.

    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This Circular provides summary information on the role of international fishery organizations or arrangements and other bodies with regard to the conservation and management of living aquatic resources. It updates information in FAO Fisheries Circular No. 908, “Summary information on the role of international fishery and other bodies with regard to the conservation and management of living resources of the high seas” prepared by Mr S.H. Marashi in 1996, but extends to management of all living a quatic resources. It includes information on new bodies established since 1996, as well as bodies with competence over inland fisheries. Bodies that have ceased to exist since that time are not included. This Circular updates information as appropriate on the establishment, area of competence, species, membership and main objectives and activities of the organizations. In addition, it contains responses of the organizations to a survey seeking information on (a) priority issues for the organiz ation; (b) implementation of post-UNCED fishery instruments; and (c) activities, plans and priorities in relation to specific issues. This information is described in relation to each relevant body, and general trends relating to priority issues and activities are identified in respect of these responses. The updated information in this Circular was provided by the relevant organizations. Where information was not received, the relevant entry remains unchanged from Circular No. 908 as indicated .
