  In the last two decades, marine and inland aquaculture has expanded rapidly, and the relative contribution of marine capture fisheries to the growing total world fish production has shrunk. Nevertheless, marine capture fisheries still contributed 49 percent of the worlds fish production in , the largest sector in comparison with mariculture. These ecosystems provide food and income to over million people in the region. Communities in Southeast Asia are heavily dependent on marine and coastal fisheries for food and their livelihood. Fisheries in this region provide a significant percentage of the protein for the region’s poor, and are the source of important export products.

The marine catch of eight Central American and Caribbean countries is dominated by shrimp trawl fisheries which have high rates of discards. The discard rate for Costa Rica and Cuba are estimated in studies sponsored by the FAO,.A rate of bycatch similar to Costa Rica and Cuba was inferred from shrimp trawl fisheries in four other Central American countries (Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras Cited by: Fishery Commission, -5 August, FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific, Bangkok, Thailand. RAP publication / 35 p. ABSTRACT This is the final report of the Twenty-eighth Session of the Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC), held in Chiang Mai, Thailand from to5 3 .

EAA operates land-based, closed-loop Fish Hatchery, Nursery and Grow-Out systems focusing on production of the healthiest, and most traceable marine fin fish to the Asia Pacific region. By embracing innovation and technology, we are able to use Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) in every stage of our production process. Given that marine capture fisheries have reached their potential, supply from aquaculture can play an important role in filling the supply-demand gap. As the leading region in aquaculture production, seafood consumers, and seafood traders, the future of seafood markets in the Asia-Pacific region will be extremely dynamic.

Although fishery production in the Asia-Pacific region, which accounts for over 63 percent of the world production, continues to rise, a study conducted by FAO on the sustainable contribution of fisheries to food security points to alarming shortages in the near future in.

Current state of fisheries and aquaculture in the Asia-Pacific region. The production from capture fisheries of this region was mt, accounting for 44 percent of the total world fishery production (Table 5).

This production comprised mt from marine waters. Asia-Pacific fisheries. The fisheries sector in the Asia-Pacific region can generally be divided into: 1. large-scale industrial/commercial subsector; and 2.

small-scale artisanal subsector [2] Intotal world fishery production was reported to be million tonnes, representing an increase of some 30 percent since (Figure 2).

Throughout the Asia-Pacific region, captured and cultured marine fisheries continue to play an important role in the economies of many countries, especially in support of food security and poverty alleviation. Capture fisheries production in the Asia-Pacific region.

Production from the Asia-Pacific region's capture fisheries totalled million tonnes in The region Marine fishery production in the Asia-Pacific region book been the world's largest producer of fish for decades, with percent of global production in In inland waters, the regional share has increased to percent.

One of the important activities of the Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC) is to provide its members with an overview of the status and potential of fisheries and aquaculture in the Asia-Pacific region. The region currently produces almost 50 percent of the world’s fish from capture fisheries and 90 percent from aquaculture.

total fisheries production of Peru, the world’s second largest fisheries producer after China PR, which was million tonnes in (including both capture and aquaculture). Even excluding China7, the Asia-Pacific region still remains an important production area for aquaculture, exhibiting steady growth regardless of the culture Size: KB.

Historically, the Asia-Pacific region (in particular the People’s Republic of China, South Asia and South-East Asia sub-regions) has dominated global aquaculture production, both in quantity and Author: Rohana Subasinghe. The Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC) held its Twenty-eighth Session from 3 to 5 organizations and arrangements in the Asia-Pacific region that address fishery issues.

This would be and often given lesser priority relative to other agriculture production sectors. For marine capture fisheries, there was rapid growth in File Size: KB. The Asia-Pacific Fishery Commission (APFIC), originally called the Indo-Pacific Fisheries Council (IPFC) is a Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Article XIV Regional Fisheries Body which covers fisheries, aquaculture and related aquatic resource issues in the Asia-Pacific region.

APFIC functions as a Regional Consultative Forum raising awareness amongst member countries, fisheries organizations and fisheries professionals in the Asia-Pacific arters: Bangkok, Thailand. The OFWG’s mission is to support APEC’s mission to foster sustainable economic growth, development and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region.

The OFWG works to facilitate free and open trade in the region and promotes the sustainable use of fisheries, aquaculture, and marine ecosystem resources and related goods and services. By weight, more than 50 percent of the world's catch of marine and river fish and 89 percent of global aquaculture comes from the Asia-Pacific region.

Eight of the top ten aquaculture producing countries in the world are in the Asia-Pacific region and inland fisheries in the region account for 68 percent of total world inland fishery production.

The Pacific Islands Region consists of 14 countries and 8 territories located in the WCPO. There is also a substantial area of international waters (high seas) in the region. Figure C shows the countries and territories, their mile EEZs and the international waters.

In the Asia and the Pacific region, aquaculture production from China, South Asia and most of Southeast Asia consists primarily of cyprinids, while production from the rest of East Asia.

Cooperation and Engagement in the Asia-Pacific Region brings together contributions from leading experts around the world in the law of the sea.

The volume addresses topics such as regional cooperation, protection and preservation of the marine environment, freedom of navigation, sustainable fisheries, and future cooperation within the important Asia-Pacific region. In this chapter, we derive several indicators of the fisheries sectors on a country‐by‐country basis, and clarify the social and ecological conditions in the Asia‐Pacific area.

These are summarized as financial, industrial profile, marine resource diversity, food security, social security, and human resource by: 5.

Fisheries Bookstated that Indonesia marine capture fisheries production was about million.The consistent increases in capture fishery production that are being achieved in the Southeast Asian region can be attributed to several effects, namely the increase in fishing effort, the expansion of the geographical range of fishing activities and the increase in the overall biomass of the fishery by fishing down effects (i.e.
