How to obtain FAO publications

Publications from headquarters (except FAO/GLOBEFISH documents) may be ordered from any of the FAO's Sales Agents (see attached list at the end of this circular). They can also be ordered either through the FAO Representative Office in your country or directly from FAO Headquarters as follows:

  • by regular mail:

Chief, Sales and Marketing Group, FAO


Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00100 Rome, Italy

  • by telefax:

+39 0657053360

  • by e-mail:

publications-sales@fao.org

  • from Web site:

http://www.fao.org/catalog/giphome.htm


Only FAO Fisheries Circulars are available free of charge. All other publications are available for sale. They should be prepaid (see below) and a photocopy of the means of payment should be sent as soon as possible to the FAO Sales and Marketing Group. Should a document be out-of-print, please state whether or not a reproduction is required (see details below).

FAO/GLOBEFISH publications should be ordered directly from FAO Fisheries Department:

  • by regular mail:

GLOBEFISH, Department of Fisheries,


FAO, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00100 Rome, Italy

  • by telefax:

+39 0657055188

  • by e-mail:

Publications from FAO Regional Offices and Regional Fishery Bodies (except for EIFAC and GFCM) should be obtained directly from the publishing Office (see FAO Publications and Documents related to Aquaculture, page iv):

Field Project Reports are available either in photocopy or in microfiche as mentioned below.

In all cases, clearly cite the complete bibliographic reference for each document. Do not just mention the K index code number, as this will considerably delay processing. The best would be to mark the requested documents on a photocopy of selected pages of this circular.

Photoreproduction of any FAO document can be obtained directly from the FAO library:

  • by regular mail:

David Lubin Memorial Library, Documentation Services


FAO, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 00100 Rome, Italy

  • by telefax:
