Latest FAO Report Aquaculture Continues to Rise China Top Producer

Dear Valued Customer,

In order to catch the market trend, we would like to share one latest news with you from the report of FAO (Food & Agriculture Organization of United States) summarizing the total production  between capture fisheries & aquaculture:


"According to the latest FAO report on "The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture (2018)", global total marine catch was 79.3 million tonnes in 2016, representing a decrease of almost 2 million tonnes from the 81.2 million tonnes in 2015.

"Aquaculture continues to grow faster than other major food production sectors although it no longer enjoys the high annual growth rates of the 1980s and 1990s.  Average annual growth declined to 5.8% during the period 2000-2016, although double-digit growth still occurred in a small number of individual countries, particularly in Africa from 2006 to 2010. Global aquaculture production in 2016 included 80 million tonnes of food fish and 30.1 million tonnes of aquatic plants, as well as 37 900 tonnes of non-food products. 

China by far the major producer of farmed food fish in 2016, has produced more than the rest of the world combined every year since 1991.  The other major producers in 2016 were India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Egypt, and Norway.  Farmed aquatic plants include mostly seaweeds and a much smaller production volume of microalgae.  China and Indonesia were by far the major producers of aquatic plants in 2016.
