Abstract:The article “Catch reconstructions reveal that global marine fisheries catches are higher than reported and declining” by Pauly and Zeller published in Nature Communications in January 2016 argues that catch reconstructions, compiled from a number of separate studies, support a different conclusion about the magnitude and recent trend of marine catches than what is shown by FAO capture production database being compiled since 1950. FAO supports research efforts to improve fisheries information. FAO welcomes this communique published in well-known scientific literature as it feeds the international discussion on unreported catches and contributes to raising awareness on issues which are critical to FAO’s mandate of improving food security and alleviating poverty. This publication also demonstrates the uniqueness and usefulness of FAO’s work on compiling global fishery statistics.”
