Total Production (FishStatJ)
FAO Yearbook of Fishery Statistics, Catches and Landings Data up to the production of 1995 (Vol.80 published in 1997). This dataset was separated into Global Capture Production and Aquaculture Production in 1998 and the Yearbooks published in 1998 and after no longer contain this dataset.
This database contains the annual series of global fishery production (capture and aquaculture) since 1950. At present separate data sets for Global Capture production and Global Aquaculture production are available from 1950. Total production time series, starting from 1997 onwards, are obtained from the Global Capture production and the Global Aquaculture production collections.
