Aquaculture now provides more than 50% of the global supply of fisheries products for direct human consumption. Given stagnating capture fisheries and a growing demand for seafood, driven by demographics and changing consumption patterns, aquaculture is likely to become more important for food security.
At a 2010 OECD workshop, policy makers, academics, industry representatives, NGOs and international organisations gathered to discuss the economic, environmental and social implications of aquaculture. This publication presents a selection of key issues discussed at that workshop, including country case studies which provide specific examples of national approaches to aquaculture management.
