International developments in fisheries policy

This chapter describes recent developments in some important global fisheries producers and looks at international developments in fisheries policy. There is a continued emphasis on improving the sustainability of capture fisheries and on promoting the continued rapid growth of the aquaculture sector in many countries. Trade negotiations continue to expand, with many agreements being signed or completed in the past two years. Regional Fisheries Management Organisations (RFMOs) continued working towards improved effectiveness, in particular for curbing illegal, unreported or unregulated fishing.
