The State of the World's Aquatic Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture

Guideline

In 2007, the Commission on Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (Commission) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) included the preparation of the report on The State of the World’s Aquatic Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (Report) into its Multi-Year Programme of Work. The Commission later determined that the scope of the Report be “farmed aquatic species and their wild relatives within national jurisdiction”.

Following a country-driven process, the Fisheries and Aquaculture Department prepared a draft Report for review by the Commission, its Ad Hoc Intergovernmental Technical Working Group on Aquatic Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture and FAO’s Committee on Fisheries (COFI). COFI also consulted its Sub-Committee on Aquaculture and its Advisory Working Group on Aquatic Genetic Resources and Technologies.
