New FAO GLOBEFISH Product - GLOBEFISH market Profiles


GLOBEFISH is pleased to announce a new product: GLOBEFISH Market Profiles. There are now Market Profiles for 205 countries and territories available on the GLOBEFISH website. 

Each GLOBEFISH Market Profile provides a snapshot of key data relevant to production and trade in fisheries and aquaculture products. This is supplemented with other relevant information aiming to present a concise overview of a market.

The GLOBEFISH Market Profile for Barbados is attached to serve as an example of the information the profiles contain. There are 22 sub-sections in each profile, including:

  • Top 10s for production, imports, and exports;
  • Share of fisheries in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the agricultural GDP;
  • Demographic data, such as population and GDP per capita;
  • Other relevant information, including Ease of Doing Business rank and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ).

The GLOBEFISH Market Profiles are automatically generated, drawing on both FAO data (FishStat) and information from other international organizations.

This new GLOBEFISH product can be instrumental in supporting field missions or when participating in bilateral meetings with governments by allowing a quick picture of the country's economic situation towards production and trade in fisheries and aquaculture products.

All GLOBEFISH Market Profiles for 205 countries and territories are available here.
