About the product

This issue of The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture features some of the aspects of fisheries and aquaculture that may receive increasing attention: 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. It also highlights a few of the Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO’s) of the UN special studies on 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. Includes a CD–ROM with the World Fisheries and Aquaculture Atlas.
