    This publication, which is part of a series of biennial reviews, was prepared for the thirtieth session of the Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC). APFIC is committed to improving the quality of information on the status and trends of fisheries and aquaculture in the region and to reviewing and analyzing this information regularly. The purpose of this document is to inform APFIC member countries of the current status and potential of fisheries and aquaculture in Asia and the Pacific region and the emerging issues facing the sector as it adapts to the continuously changing production and market environments. Two key areas identified by the Commission are also reviewed here, namely livelihoods in fisheries and the ecosystem approach to fisheries. The statistics contained herein are organized around key resources and attempt to show the trends in their production. Future volumes will aim to provide more information regarding the management status of these stocks and species grouping s.

    The capture fisheries and aquaculture sectors are of fundamental importance to the Asia-Pacific region in terms of food security, revenue generation and employment. In many countries, catching or farming aquatic resources forms a vital part of rural people's livelihoods and plays an important role in both the food security and nutritional security of many rural and coastal populations. This publication reviews the current status of inland and marine fisheries resources and their contribution to national economies and food security. Regional fishery data and information stored in FAO databases are analysed to provide a comprehensive picture of production trends of fisheries and aquaculture in the Asia-Pacific region, which is further illustrated by a detailed view of subregions and aquaculture production by species groups. It also touches upon issues that require closer attention in order for fisheries resources to be managed in a sustainable manner.
