The process was complex and included an assessment of demand and supply of fish and fish products. The analysis encompassed the preparation of national aquaculture sector overviews for more than 100 countries, five regional workshops in which participants discussed the aquaculture development status and trends in their region, the preparation of seven reports on regional aquaculture development status and trends and a global expert survey on aquaculture development using the Delphi Technique. The material developed in this process, and other relevant documentation, was then synthesized to form a draft global review of the status and trends in aquaculture development. Subsequently, this document was submitted to a group of experts, who were requested to reach consensus on the document and to craft the prospective analysis of future aquaculture development.
