Abstract or Summary
  • This paper describes a desk study of small pelagic utilization in Asia. Drawing on regional data and country case studies - it seeks to chart significant trends in the sector and identify issues for further research. Possible responses to under-utilization include increasing fishing intensity, exploitation of under/unexploited stocks reduction in post-harvest losses, and the upgrading of fish meal for human consumption. The commonly held view that small pelagic resources are one of the last unexploited resources was found to be not universally applicable. The situation is more complex with many inland coastal resources heavily exploited. Under exploited offshore resources do exist but the hard economics rarely justify their exploitation. Post-harvest losses also appear smaller than many commentators have suggested while rising demand for fish as food will continue to reduce use in feed compounds. Possible areas for further research include a more detailed investigation of the feasibility and economics of alternative sources of fish meal and ways in which low-income groups can continue to engage in production, processing and trade of small pelagics (including consideration of technology options accessible to low-income groups).
