Edited by Alessandro Lovatelli, Fishery Resources Officer (Aquaculture), FAO, Rome, Italy

Capture-based aquaculture - the harvesting of wild individuals for on-growing under confined and controlled conditions - is used in aquaculture fish production.
The FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture Department, in an effort to evaluate the sustainability of this farming practice while promoting the responsible use of wild fish and fishery resources, has published Capture-based aquaculture - global review.
This technical paper contains two reviews on environmental/biodiversity and social/economic impacts of capture-based aquaculture as well as eleven species review papers. Both marine and freshwater examples have been reviewed and include finfish (mullet, bluefin tuna, European eel, cod, grouper, yellowtail, Clarias catfish, Indian major carps, and snakehead and Pangasiid catfish), crustaceans (mud crab) and molluscs (oyster).
