FAO National Aquaculture Sector Overview (NASO)

The FAO National Aquaculture Sector Overview (NASO) collection consists of concise and comprehensive products, providing a general overview of the aquaculture and culture based fisheries aspects at the national level.

FAO is currently preparing NASOs for more than 100 FAO member countries around the globe, following a standard template.

The NASOs contain detailed information on the history of aquaculture; human resources involved in the sector; farming systems distribution and characteristics; main cultured species contributing to national production; production statistics; description of the main domestic markets and trade; promotion and management of the sector; and development trends and issues at the national level. NASO is part of FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department regular programme and it was decided to update the online documents every 4/5 years.
