Recent trends in OECD fisheries and aquaculture

This chapter describes trends in capture fisheries and aquaculture production, trade, fleet development, employment and government financial transfers, providing a snapshot of key developments. The data show the dominance of South East Asian countries in fisheries and aquaculture production and trade, and the continuation of the long-term decline in importance of OECD fisheries production. Aquaculture production will continue to be the source of growth in fish products worldwide.
