Data & Information

  • Additional information on the Aquaculture Dialogues and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council.
  • The UN Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture Report 2010 provides comprehensive statistics on wild-caught and aquaculture production, consumption, stocks, and trends.
  • More information on the issues surrounding feed inputs in Aquaculture.
  • Chemical usage, including antibiotics, is a critical issue in aquaculture with potentially severe impacts on human and ecosystem health. In May 2007, the World Health Organization convened a meeting of experts to determine which antibiotics are critical to human health and should be used in humans only, and not in aquaculture and other animal breeding. The list of restricted antibiotics is contained in the document: Critically Important Antimicrobials for Human Medicine: Categorization for the Development of Risk Management Strategies to Contain Antimicrobial Resistance Due to Non-Human Antimicrobial Use.
  • General information on antimicrobial resistance.
  • Information on chemical use in the salmon sector.
