Globalisation in Fisheries and Aquaculture

Opportunities and Challenges

image of Globalisation in Fisheries and Aquaculture

This overview of global markets for fish and fish products finds that they have changed considerably over the past few decades and continue to do so, with ever growing interactions across countries and continents. Change has brought substantial benefits to the world economy and a number of policy challenges for governments. To meet these challenges, without compromising the advantages of increasing market interactions, countries must develop and implement fisheries management frameworks and aquaculture strategies that accommodate globalisation without undermining resource sustainability.



Annex B. Global Developments in Groundfish, Salmon, Shrimp and Tuna

This annex provides an overview of the four major markets for fish and fish products: groundfish, salmon, shrimp and tuna. These four markets (each of them make up a number of species that may, to some degree, have different end uses) are the principal markets in international trade in fish and fish products, and are also subject to foreign direct investment and fisheries access agreements (except for salmon).
