dc.description.abstract Recent trends in global fish production, consumption and trade reflect several fundamental shifts in the structure of supply of and demand for fish and seafood. Rapid changes in world demand for fish is first discussed. Six panelists discuss the issues derived from considering fisheries—with particular emphasis on aquaculture—as a major form of food and export production in developing countries that competes with crop and livestock activities for resources. A first paper will review and analyze developments in international seafood markets and its impact on developing countries. This is followed by discussion of the conceptual and practical methodological issues in integrating fish into a broader world food model. Subsequent papers will provide more in-depth sectoral consideration of the trade-offs involved in placing fisheries supply and demand issues in the broader context of agriculture supply and demand, with added regional insights for specific parts of developing Asia and Sub- Saharan Africa. Two panel discussants with broad geographic experience and in-depth knowledge of fisheries issues will provide synthesis of the papers, followed by an open discussion of the panel topic and related issues. en_US
