Joint evaluation of international trade in fish. Published as FAO Fisheries Technical Paper 456.

The study recommends that fishery resources be protected by placing greater emphasis on local cooperation among the coastal population on protecting resources. Furthermore, a larger share of the revenues in the fish trade chain should go to the first links. Small-scale fishing should also be recognised as an importance source of food. In order to achieve sustainable international trade in fish, it must be made more people-centred, and a Code of Conduct for Responsible Fish Trade should be drawn up at the global level.
