Description: This issue of The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture aims to provide objective, reliable and
up-to-date data and information to a wide range of readers – policy-makers, managers, scientists,
stakeholders and indeed all those interested in the fisheries and aquaculture sector. As always, the
scope is global and the topics many and varied.
This edition uses the latest official statistics on fisheries and aquaculture to present a global analysis
of trends in fish stocks, production, processing, utilization, trade and consumption. It also reports on
the status of the world’s fishing fleets and analyses the make-up of human engagement in the sector.
Twenty years on from the introduction of the Code of Conduct for Responsible Conduct, and now
with the recently adopted Sustainable Development Goals, 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development, Paris Agreement, and the Small-Scale Fisheries Guidelines, the focus on governance
and policy has never been greater. This edition covers recent developments as they relate to
fisheries and aquaculture, and reports, inter alia, on the Common Oceans ABNJ Program, FAO’s
Blue Growth Initiative and efforts to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing. It also
discusses issues such as valuing inland fisheries, cutting bycatch and promoting decent work. Other
topics highlighted include: nutrition; aquatic invasive alien species; responsible inland fisheries;
resilience in fisheries and aquaculture; and governance of tenure and user rights.
