The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations released a report on “The State of World Aquaculture 2006” at the September 4-8 meeting of the FAO Sub-Committee on Aquaculture in New Delhi.

However, the report warns that demand for fish is increasing, while wild catches are at or above their limits. The report questions whether aquaculture will be able to supply remaining demand, unless more investment capital is made available for developing countries and given supplies of land, fresh water, and fish feed.

“We need to start planning now for handling these challenges, because aquaculture is crucial to the fight against global hunger,” Ichiro Nomura, FAO Assistant Director-General for Fisheries, says.
