The fisheries information service of RAPA
The FAO Regional Office for Asia and Pacific (RAPA) covers 30 countries in the Region which produce 42 percent of the world's fish production. One of its functions is to monitor and report major development trends in food and agriculture, including fisheries, in the Region. In carrying out this function RAPA collects, produces and disseminates information to different countries. The servicing of fisheries information at RAPA is undertaken by 2 units, namely: 1) the Fisheries Section and 2) the RAPA Library. This paper summarizes the activities carried out.
