Sustainability in Global Aquaculture

Sustainability in Global Aquaculture

Asia has become the key production center for fishery products due to:

Geographical advantages

Financial support from governments

Low labor and manufacturing costs

China is the main contributor of fish products, contributing 􂀀% of global fishery products.

Southeast Asia is growing into the second largest producing region with an aggregate contribution of 􂀀%.

Highly industrialized countries such as the United States, France, Italy, and Japan show a continuous decrease in production.

Over the last decade, the global capture of fishery products has increased by 􂀀%, indicating that producers are over-exploiting wild stocks and raising production in an unsustainable way.

Among the main producing countries, Peru, Japan, Chile, and Thailand have experienced a continuous decrease in fishery product capture without sacrificing total production.

New regulations have been launched to control illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing (IUUF), decrease in wild populations, and unsustainable aquatic farming.

Inland aquaculture has been encouraged to integrate aquaculture with agriculture in order to preserve water resources.
