Status of Electronic Collection and Reporting of Key Information in Major Fisheries

This report provides an evaluation of the status of electronic collection and reporting of key fisheries and product information in major fishing nations and regions. Electronic fisheries information systems (EFIS) that allow for the accurate and verifiable collection of fisheries data—and the sharing and tracing of that data from harvest through the value chain to final point of sale—are slowly developing in regional, national, and global systems, in both developed and developing countries, and national and international fisheries.
