In addition to the usual review of the recent world food and agricultural situation, each issue of The State of Food and Agriculture since 1957 has included one or more special studies on problems of longer-term interest. This year’s edition focuses on marine fisheries and the law of the sea.



Current and future issues

The developments of the past decade have significant implications for the future management of fisheries and raise issues with regard to achieving increased benefits from existing resources. Many of the major challenges of the past decade will continue into the future, requiring significantly increased attention in order to prevent continued waste and conflict. Other developments are still emerging and are likely to lead to changes in various elements of fisheries, with positive outcomes in some cases and possibly negative ones in others.
