The FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department provides advice and objective information to Members to help promote responsible aquaculture and fisheries. To fulfil this role, the Department compiles, analyses and disseminates fishery data, structured within data collections. To ensure quality assurance, each collection is documented to highlight definitions and to specify the structure, sources, coverage, processes, intended use, etc. This is further complemented with the
CWP Handbook of Fishery Statistical Standards
which includes comprehensive definitions of concepts and details of standard classifications.
Global time series of capture and aquaculture productions, commodities and trade, fishers, apparent consumption of fish and fisheries products, and tuna catches by stock are maintained together with several time series of regional capture statistics. To meet diverse user needs, data from each statistical collection are available through various formats, tools and information products:
