About the book
This volume of The FAO Yearbook of Fishery Statistics: Aquaculture Production, includes summary tables and revisions for data on fish, crustaceans, mollusks and other aquatic animals and plants produced from all culture practices for the years 1992-2001. The statistics are measured in units of quantity and value, and are presented by country or territory, species, culture environment and year, and in various other aggregates. In order to provide complete coverage of aquaculture production statistics throughout the world, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has used the best information available to make estimates, in cases where officially reported national statistics are lacking or are considered unreliable. This trilingual publication is in English, French and Spanish.
