Description: Total and per caput fish supply in live weight by country by year and for the major food fish consuming countries by main groups of species
Key: Aquatic species and processed commodities
Тип: Species
More info: Groups of species (only for the major fish consuming countries)
Code system: FAOSTAT groups of species classification (4 digit code e.g. Crustaceans 1504)
Aggregation: Species and processed commodities (e.g. frozen Molluscs, Demersal cured, Crustaceans canned etc.) are arranged in 10 FAOSTAT groups:
  1. Freshwater and Diadromous fishes
  2. Demersal fishes

  4. Miscellaneous marine fishes
  5. Crustaceans
  6. Molluscs
  7. Cephalopods
  8. Aquatic Animals
  9. Mammals
  10. Aquatic Plants
These groups are one of the possible top level aggregations of the 50 ISSCAAP groups of species
