The Member Associations of the FEAP provide historical production data for the activities of their national producers on an annual basis. In addition, where possible, forecasts for the coming year are also indicated, based on their own individual reporting systems.The FEAP Secretariat groups this information into European and National reports on production that are published here. The information and figures used for the preparation of this report have been provided, for the most part, by the Member Associations of the FEAP while additional data has been sourced from National statistical offices and/or other national sources.

For further statistical information on aquaculture production and values, the FAO provides a wide range of data for global aquaculture and fisheries statistics (FISHSTAT) while Globefish, another initiative of the FAO, represents a network of regional marketing information services that provides data on markets and prices. European trade data can be accessed through EUMOFA – the European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture Products (see and EUROSTAT.
