The FAO estimates aquaculture's growth at slightly under 5 percent a year and its production in 1987 at 13 million tons. Approximately 80 percent of reported yield comes from Asia, 12 percent from Europe, 3 percent from North America, 2 percent from South America, and less than 1 percent from Africa. The aquaculture industry in general maintains a course toward greater intensification. Although this means greater potential supplies, it also means greater potential pollution, degradation of the aquatic environment, and upsetting of the balance in local environmental and social systems.
It provided dramatic evidence of the limited size of fishery stocks, evidence already substantiated by biological investigations. 0 percent a year. Recently there has been a reported increase in production, much of which has come from aquaculture and from small, shoaling pelagic species (of relatively low value). There have also been large increases in certain small pelagics, notably the Japanese sardine and other Pacific sardine stocks. These stocks are subject to severe natural fluctuations, both short-term and long-term.
In some cases, important stocks of fish are shared by the zones of neighboring coastal states. In other cases, stocks may "straddle" economic zones and international waters outside the 200-mile limits. Oceanic tunas are both shared and straddling. Page 14 Changes in resource availability. The extension of national jurisdictions, although initiated by developing countries, also resulted because of the global scarcity of wild stocks and the increase in the value of the resources. The scarcity and the changes in value have also had other important ramifications for fishery management and development.
