Aquaculture production statistics 1985-1994.

Abstract

Aquaculture production statistics for fish, crustaceans, molluscs and other aquatic animals and plants from 1985 to 1994 are presented by species and by country, by country and by species, and by species and by environment. Section heading are also in French and Spanish. Production values in terms of US dollars are provided by country, species and species group, providing more detail than previous issues of Fisheries Circular No. 815. A number of piecharts and bar graphs are given to facilitate data interpretation. Where official national statistics are lacking, FAO has made estimates based on the best information available. Quantities produced are expressed as liveweight equivalents and so are equivalent to nominal catch statistics published in the FAO Yearbook of Fishery Statistics - Catches and Landings.
