FAO: More Aquaculture statistics 2014
World aquaculture production continues to grow, albeit at a slowing rate. According to the latest vailable statistics collected globally by FAO, world aquaculture production attained another all-time high of 90.4 million tonnes (live weight equivalent) in 2012 (US$144.4 billion), including 66.6 million tonnes of food fish (US$137.7 billion) and 23.8 million tonnes of aquatic algae (mostly seaweeds, US$6.4 billion).
In addition, some countries also reported collectively the production of 22 400 tonnes of non-food products (US$222.4 million), such as pearls and seashells for ornamental and decorative uses. For this analysis, the term “food fish” includes finfishes, crustaceans, molluscs, amphibians, freshwater turtles and other aquatic animals (such as sea cucumbers, sea urchins, sea squirts and edible jellyfish) produced for the intended use as food for human consumption. At the time of writing, some countries (including major producers such as China and the Philippines) had released their provisional or final official aquaculture statistics for 2013. According to the latest information, FAO estimates that world food fish aquaculture production rose by 5.8 % to 70.5 million tones in 2013, with production of farmed aquatic plants (including mostly seaweeds) being estimated at 26.1 million tonnes.In 2013, China alone produced 43.5 million tonnes of food fish and 13.5 million tonnes of aquatic algae.
