This document presents a compendium of four decades of statistics of apparent consumption for fish and fishery products for 220 countries, six continental aggregates, four economic groupings and global totals based on the Supply/Utilization Accounts (SUAs) maintained in FAOSTAT, the statistical component of the FAO World Agricultural Information Centre (WAICENT). Data are given for total and per caput supply in live weight on a yearly basis. Indicative nutritional values in terms of animal and total proteins are also shown. For 40 major food fish consuming countries, balances are provided for supply in quantities and nutritional factors of eight main groups of species of similar biological characteristics. A section comprising descriptive and analytical graphs supplements the data.
