Title: FAO presentation on commodity trade development  [15/09/2007]
Source: www.globefish.org
By Ms. Helga Josupeit (FIIU-FAO)
Worldwide fishery production continues to increase, but at lower growth rates than some years before. In 2003, some decline was experienced, as a result of lower capture fisheries, however in 2004 and 2005 production continued to expand even further.

With wild fish stocks increasingly being fully fished or overfished, this growth is mainly due to aquaculture production. In fact, aquaculture production grew at an average rate of 9 percent since 1970, while capture production remained relatively stable at values around 90 million tons since the Nineties. By 2005, the share of aquaculture accounted for about one third of total production and almost 43% of food fish production.

    Fish Info Network Directors meet at Conxemar, Vigo
    In October each year the Spanish Association of Wholesalers, Importers, Manufacturers and Exporters of Fish products and Aquaculture (Conxemar) organizes the International Frozen Seafood Exhibition in Vigo, Spain.

    Back to back with this event Conxemar jointly holds an international conference together with FAO. This year the conference was dedicated to cephalopods, a group of molluscs that includes squids, cuttlefishes, and octopus. The conference also provides the backdrop for various side events such as the Vigo dialogue on decent work in fisheries and aquaculture, and the meeting of the Fish Info Network (FIN).
