Fisheries and aquaculture products are currently the most traded animal protein worldwide in value terms. The associated industry is also characterized by a wide range of product types and participants, making trade global, diverse, and complex. In recent decades, the fisheries and aquaculture sectors expanded significantly with an increase in overall production, trade, and consumption.
The FAO Session will present a general outlook of international trade of fisheries and aquaculture products. It will also explain the causes of import notifications of fisheries and aquaculture products at the main importing markets, and present an overview of seaweed and microalgae in global aquaculture development.
