Fisheries Key to Food Security, Nutrition

Sustainable fisheries and aquaculture are crucial to food security and nutrition, says FAO

The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) says sustainable fisheries and aquaculture are crucial to food security and nutrition.
 
FAO director-general, José Graziano da Silva, opened a meeting of the world's only inter-governmental forum on fisheries and aquaculture issues, calling for urgent action to address climate change and other threats to sustainable fisheries and fish stocks.
 
FAO's Committee on Fisheries (COFI) opened its 9-13 June session to address a range of issues related to the long-term well-being of marine and inland fisheries and aquaculture and potential action by governments, regional fishery bodies, non-governmental organisations, fish workers and other actors in the international community.
