This period was selected as the focal time frame as it allows for the development and presentation of more than 20 years of historical data in more detailed form. Rome, FAO. This may be due to the high residence time and slow water exchange of large lake systems, allowing them to absorb or accumulate impacts, through processes that occur over a period of many years, before reaching a tipping point. A draft of the publication was sent for comments to other FAO departments and regional offices, and a final draft was submitted to the Office of the FAO Deputy Director-General, Climate and Natural Resources, and to the Office of the FAO Director-General for approval. Increased consumption of fish, with its diverse and valuable nutritional attributes, can directly reduce the prevalence of malnutrition and correct imbalanced high-calorie and low-micronutrient diets. & Waycott, M. 2011. The hope that the situation is on the cusp of change is not unfounded, with countries reporting that they are regulating their fleets more effectively through monitoring, control and surveillance (MCS), limiting fishing effort and increasing research activities. Robust fisheries management, more efficient transport and greater waste reclamation must all play a part in reducing post-harvest losses and limiting the environmental effects of the sector. & Block, B.A. 2016. The two most productive species were Peruvian anchoveta (Engraulis ringens) and jumbo flying squid (Dosidicus gigas), with landings of almost 4.0 million tonnes and 0.76 million tonnes respectively. Vulnerability of tropical Pacific fisheries and aquaculture to climate change: summary for Pacific island countries and territories. Together, all these actions are enhancing the resilience of the fishing communities and ensuring their conscious contribution in actively taking part in the global effort to address climate change. TABLE 13REPORTED NUMBER OF MOTORIZED AND NON-MOTORIZED VESSELS BY LOA CLASS IN FISHING FLEETS FROM SELECTED COUNTRIES AND TERRITORIES, 2018. 2019c. Deficiencies in data collection are still important, but no longer the only driver in data gaps. The original English edition shall be the authoritative edition.”. fishing vessel operations, landing, product splits and processing). [Cited 27 December 2019]. In 2018, fish exports of developing countries were valued at USD 88 billion, and their net fish export revenues (exports minus imports) reached USD 38 billion, higher than those of other agricultural commodities (such as meat, tobacco, rice and sugar) combined. Seaweeds and other aquatic plants, the majority being farmed, are not currently included in the FBS, but they are important components of national cuisines in many parts of Asia, in particular East Asia. Although species extinction in the oceans is markedly lower than on land (McCauley, 2015), extra-ordinary management responses, often involving a broadened range of governance actors, are being put in place to recover productivity of many ocean areas by reversing marked depletions of fish stocks. 2020. In quantity terms, world trade in fish for human consumption is expected to grow by 9 percent in the projection period, and to reach more than 54 million tonnes in live weight equivalent in 2030 and 47 million tonnes if trade within the European Union is excluded (Table 18). Some rights reserved. In Tokelau, a territory comprising three atolls in the Pacific Ocean, fishing is not just a source of food and nutrition, but a way of life. 2018. Thus, based on their own circumstances, they were able to decide which sectors to prioritize, including with regard to trade-offs among different groups of oceans and wetlands users and how to ensure sustainability via proper stewardship of ecosystems supporting production from those sectors. 2019. Documentation and dissemination of best practices and lessons learned were discussed with the traditional authority and the local government to inform the devolution for securing user rights. The highest numbers of workers are in Asia (85 percent), followed by Africa (9 percent), the Americas (4 percent), and Europe and Oceania (1 percent each). Most living things in soils, including plants, animals, bacteria, and fungi, are dependent on organic matter for nutrients and/or energy. and Indian oil sardine (Sardinella longiceps) are likely to be overfished, but anchovies (Engraulidae), hilsa shad (Tenualosa ilisha), Indian mackerel (Rastrelliger kanagurta), scads (Decapterus spp. The significant investment required for aquaculture farms, coupled with limited purchasing power in developing countries, may drive investment into export-oriented and lucrative aquaculture (Asche et al., 2015). In medicine, seaweeds can be used to treat iodine deficiency and as a vermifuge (Marine Biotechnology, 2015). The framework of SDG 2 balances food security concerns with sustainability considerations, seeking to “end hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.” The underlying issues threatening food and nutrition security are often complex and continue to present challenges for development. In: FAO [online]. Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B, 367: 2979–2989 [online]. World Commission on Environment and Development. To start with, reducing the pressure on fish stocks often requires a reduction in fishing effort and/or capacity. Global standardization and local complexity. calcium, magnesium, sodium). Even when taking into consideration catches of anchoveta – which are often substantial yet highly variable because of the influence of El Niño events – total marine catches have been relatively stable since the mid-2000s, ranging from 78 million tonnes to 81 million tonnes per year, following a decline from the peak catches of the late-1990s. All data are expressed in live weight equivalent. FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Paper No. https://ipbes.net/sites/default/files/ipbes_global_assessment_chapter_2_1_drivers_unedited_31may.pdf. Figure 16 shows the proportion of motorized and non-motorized vessels by region. In order to eliminate IUU fishing, various international instruments have been developed. [232][233], Humus formation is a process dependent on the amount of plant material added each year and the type of base soil. & Soto, D. 2018. [284], Soil contamination at low levels is often within a soil's capacity to treat and assimilate waste material. The following are illustrative examples of BGI activities to inform of the vast possibilities for promoting a good balance between sustained growth of fisheries and aquaculture, conservation and social responsibility. The quality and completeness of data also vary between marine and inland water captures, with marine catches having generally more complete data available by species than do inland captures. Demand will also be stimulated by changes in dietary trends, pointing towards more variety in the typology of food consumed, and a greater focus on better health, nutrition and diet, with fish playing a key role in this regard. www.fao.org/flw-in-fish-value-chains/en/, FAO. However, owing to the highly diverse and dispersed nature of small-scale fisheries, quantifying and understanding their multiple contributions to and impacts on sustainable development is difficult. FAO-Thiaroye processing technique: towards adopting improved fish smoking systems in the context of benefits, trade-offs and policy implications from selected developing countries. The questionnaire section on post-harvest practices and trade highlights the global increase in food safety and quality assurance systems implemented since 2012. On the policy opportunities for fisheries and aquatic ecosystems in the twenty-first century: ▸ Integrate fisheries into broader planning and governance frameworks – fisheries management cannot act in isolation, and should be working alongside other more visible and economically valuable sectors. Six molecules of carbon dioxide plus sugar plus light energy converts six molecules of carbon and six molecules of oxygen. Users wishing to reuse material from this work that is attributed to a third party, such as tables, figures or images, are responsible for determining whether permission is needed for that reuse and for obtaining permission from the copyright holder. In the absence of national reports or in the event of inconsistencies in the data, FAO may make estimates based on the best data available from alternative official data sources (including data published by regional fisheries management organizations [RFMOs]), or through standard methodologies. https://population.un.org/wpp/, United States Geological Survey. 627. Moreover, per capita fish consumption has doubled in the last 50 years (see here); and dietary recommendations include a significant increase in fish consumption (Willett et al., 2019). These revised data provided improved and comprehensive knowledge of the fisheries and aquaculture sector and of its magnitude, and they were used as a reference for improving previous estimates for 2016 data for China’s fish production. [266] Soil is the habitat for many organisms: the major part of known and unknown biodiversity is in the soil, in the form of invertebrates (earthworms, woodlice, millipedes, centipedes, snails, slugs, mites, springtails, enchytraeids, nematodes, protists), bacteria, archaea, fungi and algae; and most organisms living above ground have part of them (plants) or spend part of their life cycle (insects) below-ground. [9], Soil science has two basic branches of study: edaphology and pedology. 2020. TABLE 3MARINE CAPTURE PRODUCTION: MAJOR SPECIES AND GENERA. Supplies of cephalopods, particularly of octopus, have become increasingly scarce in recent years as the productivity of important octopus fisheries has declined, requiring stringent management regimes. Sustainable Development Goal 14 (Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development) has clear implications for marine fisheries and aquaculture, providing actionable objectives that require international collaboration. While RFMOs have made significant progress, it is recognized that capacity strengthening is still needed, especially in relation to biodiversity-related planning, research, monitoring, compliance, communication and assessment of fishery-related impacts (Juan-Jordá et al., 2018). The case-study countries represent 76 percent of the global marine catch, 83 percent of the global small-scale fisheries catch, and 86 percent of marine fishers. Food security and food production systems. The increasing influx of work being done in conjunction with these platforms is enabling discreet elements of the questionnaire to be processed in an unprecedented way. ▸ Improve public and governmental perception of fisheries to justify investment and respond to criticism, thus increasing ownership of the fisheries agenda. FAO. FAO’s methodology for SDG Indicator 14.7.1 focuses only on the sustainable use of marine resources by fisheries. Small island developing States (SIDS), faced with particular challenges in fully implementing these instruments due to their large EEZs, also registered a medium level of implementation. Regarding the Code’s implementation, most Members report constraints related to insufficient budgetary and human resources. 62 pp. 389–417. In recent years, the uptake of the FAO Voluntary Guidelines for Catch Documentation Schemes has supported such actions. They can include: direct costs of lost production due to mortalities and slow growth; temporary or permanent closure of aquaculture facilities, causing loss of employment in aquaculture and related upstream and downstream industries; and decreased trade and loss of markets due to bans on exportation, and loss of domestic sales due to public concerns over the safety of consuming fish and shellfish (with spillover into capture fisheries). Under the SDGs, SDG Target 14.7 is defined (United Nations, 2019b) thus: “By 2030, increase the economic benefits to small island developing States and least developed countries from the sustainable use of marine resources, including through sustainable management of fisheries, aquaculture and tourism.” Its related indicator, SDG Indicator 14.7.1, is defined thus: “Sustainable fisheries as a percentage of GDP in small island developing States, least developed countries and all countries.”.

In 2017, landings in the Northeast Pacific remained at the same level as 2013, at about 3.3 million tonnes. Rome/Roma. In 2017, AIS started to be considered a valid technology for estimating fishing indicators. Mohanty, B., Mohanty, U., Pattanaik, S., Panda, A. The interpretation of the maps can be greatly enhanced by triangulating the results of threat maps with field observations based on local knowledge and data collection, something that FAO and its Members could seek to strengthen. ▸ Aquatic animal health management: A lack (or insufficient number and quality) of institutional and technical capacities limits the application of effective biosecurity measures. ▸ Shrimp and prawn catches recorded new highs in 2017 and 2018 at over 336 000 tonnes, mostly due to the continued recovery in catches of Argentine red shrimp (Pleoticus muelleri) as a result of successful management measures enforced by the national authorities of Argentina. FAO’s role will be to develop and promote globally applicable resources to support the development of such strategies. Asia had the largest absolute number of motorized vessels under 12 m, followed by the Americas (particularly Latin American and the Caribbean). 2018. Los Baños, Philippines, International Center for Living Aquatic Resources Management. This section reviews major advances in the uptake and implementation of international instruments, tools and initiatives that encourage and facilitate the combating of this destructive activity. The Code is to be interpreted and applied in conformity with the relevant rules of international law, and nothing in the Code prejudices the rights, jurisdiction and duties of States under international law as reflected in UNCLOS. 27 pp. The questionnaire should be proactive – including emerging issues, and learning from past responses in the formulation of new questions. Heating (by sterilization, pasteurization, hot smoking or cooking) reduces the amount of thermolabile nutrients, although their concentration can increase by cooking, which reduces the relative moisture content of foods, thereby increasing concentration of some nutrients. FAO, IFAD, UNICEF, WFP & WHO. FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Technical Paper No. 36 pp. [Cited 13 December 2019]. Among major producing countries, Egypt, Chile, India, Indonesia, Viet Nam, Bangladesh and Norway have consolidated their share in regional or world production to varying degree over the past two decades. 394 pp. Jackson, A. BOX 21NOT LEAVING FISHERIES AND AQUACULTURE BEHIND IN MULTISECTORAL POLICIES FOR FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION. 2. 2019m. They react to produce sugar and oxygen. The main objective of the Global Record is to increase transparency and traceability (and support risk assessments of vessels involved in fishing activities) in order to prevent, deter and eliminate illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing activities within the framework of existing international instruments, including the Agreement on Port State Measures to Prevent, Deter and Eliminate Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated Fishing (PSMA). Despite persistent differences in levels of fish consumption between regions and individual States, clear trends can be identified. They cover the responsibilities of flag, coastal, port and market States. Finally the oven dry condition is reached at 1,000,000 kPa suction (pF = 7). Much has changed in the past 25 years, from overfishing to rapid development in international trade in fish and fish products, to the rapid growth of aquaculture, and to the recognition of the impacts of climate change on fisheries and aquaculture. Following disruptions, many farmers who have been unable to sell their harvest have had to maintain large quantities of live fish. Global “status map” based on the interaction of 20 pressures at basin level for the 34 indicative basins that support inland fisheries, 58. The higher prices at the production level, coupled with high demand of fish for human consumption, will stimulate an estimated 22 percent increase in the average price of internationally traded fish by 2030 relative to 2018. There is no alternative to sustainabilityGiven the livelihood and food security pressures in many developing regions, sustainability challenges need to be addressed with measures that move beyond simple environmental protection targets. Developments to the system are ongoing and will mainly look to improve system performance, usability, and upload mechanisms, and to create linkages with other relevant systems. The sector provides income and employment for an estimated 250 million people and, as a consequence, it is central for ensuring the livelihoods of a substantial proportion of the world’s population. TABLE 1WORLD FISHERIES AND AQUACULTURE PRODUCTION, UTILIZATION AND TRADE1, WORLD CAPTURE FISHERIES AND AQUACULTURE PRODUCTION, WORLD FISH UTILIZATION AND APPARENT CONSUMPTION, FIGURE 3REGIONAL CONTRIBUTION TO WORLD FISHERIES AND AQUACULTURE PRODUCTION. Octopus is popular as an ingredient in a variety of dishes than have become popular with modern consumers, including Hawaiian poke (fish salad) and Spanish-style tapas, while squid is commonly featured on restaurant menus and as a packaged frozen seafood in supermarkets. The statistics are the outcome of an established programme to ensure the best possible information, including assistance to enhance countries’ capacity to collect and submit data according to international standards. by video camera) and physical data to monitor, for example, fish growth, health and feed loss reduction. Deep-sea fishing (DSF) occurs over continental slopes, seamounts, ridge systems and banks on soft muddy sediments and hard, rocky substrates, mostly between 400 m and 1 500 m, although some specialized vessels may fish down to 2 000 m. While DSF can be traced back 450 years, major expansion began with the deployment of factory-freezer trawlers in the mid-1950s, leading to huge catches. Development of such a resource will enable producers, resource managers, conservationists, policymakers and researchers to make informed decisions on the effective management, sustainable utilization and appropriate exchange of these resources. The consolidated results of the questionnaire will be presented at the third meeting of the Parties to the PSMA, which is to be held in Brussels, Belgium, in November 2020. www.oie.int/. A/RES/72/249. Initial assessment, May 2020. In contrast, landings of squids, cuttlefishes, octopuses and shrimps have increased greatly since 1990. Linking the threat maps to fishery data at a subnational level will enable more detailed national analysis and planning, especially pointing to areas where there is a need for greater understanding of primary threats and their relationship to fisheries production and fish biodiversity. Of the latter, 80 percent (about 18 million tonnes) was reduced to fishmeal and fish oil, while the rest (4 million tonnes) was largely utilized as ornamental fish, for culture (e.g. The latter category represents some of the world’s most productive inland fisheries that have rather high threat scores, underlining the fact that, in these basins, high population densities and nutrient loadings, coupled with abundant water resources, might drive their productivity. [288], Desertification is an environmental process of ecosystem degradation in arid and semi-arid regions, often caused by badly adapted human activities such as overgrazing or excess harvesting of firewood. Food loss is the decrease in the quantity or quality of food resulting from decisions and actions by food. These include stocks of large marine zooplankton, such as Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) and the copepod Calanus finmarchicus, although concerns remain over the impacts on marine food webs. Suction has a positive value and can be regarded as the total force required to pull or push water out of soil. [12], Soil functions as a major component of the Earth's ecosystem. Multilateral agreements are being negotiated to strengthen policies and practice, considering the needs of biodiversity as a core element of sustainable use. The projections illustrated in this section depict an outlook for fisheries and aquaculture in terms of projected production, utilization, trade, prices and key issues that might influence future supply and demand. In more recent times, however, shrimp’s share of total trade has been declining and it has been overtaken by salmon in terms of total traded value.
