FAO National Aquaculture Legislation Overview (NALO)

The National Aquaculture Legislation Overview (NALO) consists of a series of comparative national overviews of aquaculture laws and regulations from the top 40 aquaculture producing countries, and have been prepared in collaboration with the FAO Development Law Service. The preparation of the overviews is primary based on FAOLEX, a legislative database containing the world's largest electronic collection of national laws and regulations on food and agriculture, following a standard template.

FAO endeavours to ensure, through consultation and verification process, the accuracy of the information contained in the NALO fact sheets. However, certain NALO fact sheets have been published on the basis that the information contained therein will be corrected if need be at the request of the competent national authorities.

NALO fact sheets are updated on a regular basis, every 2/3 years.
