Regional Office


The key activities of the FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department are driven to support and promote responsible and sustainable development in fisheries and aquaculture.
Activities reflect the main FAO mandate of managing knowledge and information, assuring a global neutral forum for Members and providing technical assistance. They also relate to the Department's overall goals and mission, specifically the management and conservation of aquatic resources; utilization, marketing and trade of fishery products; and development of fisheries policies. Each activity contains a brief introduction with links to available background and related information; some also have Web sites for specific programmes or projects.
