This is a summary of some of the findings from the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s survey on finfish and mussel species. A presentation of the production estimates, co-authored by Ragnar Nystoyl, Ragnar Tveteras and Darryl Jory, was recently presented at the GOAL 2016 conference in Guangzhou, China.
The estimates are based on a global survey of many responders undertaken by GAA, coordinated by Jory, and estimates from Kontali. Production figures until 2014 are largely based on The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Fishstat database. The Norwegian Seafood Council and the U.S. National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) has provided data on prices for several species.
