Resumen del Libro
This publication presents a compilation of statistics on nominal catches of fish, crustaceans, molluscs and other aquatic animals, residues and plants from capture fisheries worldwide, with the exclusion of aquaculture production. The statistics are presented by country or territory, species, major fishing area and various aggregations, for a varying series of recent years ending in 2001. The data is based on officially reported national statistics, or where these are lacking or are considered unreliable, from FAO estimates based on the best information available. A separate volume is available for catch statistics from aquaculture production (ISBN 9250049560).
