Fishery and aquaculture statistics in China are compiled mainly through 18 standard reporting forms that are annually submitted by 31 local administrative units (provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities under direct control of the central government). The reporting forms cover a variety of subject areas including: i) production, ii) structure of the sector, iii) marketing and supporting industry, iv) processing, v) employment, vi) socio-economic aspects of fishing households, vii) investment in the fishery sector and viii) damage and loss caused by disaster in the sector. These sets of data are analysed and reported in the China Fisheries Yearbook, an annual publication of the Bureau of Fisheries, Ministry of Agriculture.
