SEAFDEC is pleased to announce the launching of the publication “The Southeast Asian State of Fisheries and Aquaculture (SEASOFIA) 2022” on 18 April 2022. The SEASOFIA 2022 provides useful information on fisheries and aquaculture production, recent issues and initiatives, and outlook on ensuring the sustainable development of fisheries and aquaculture in the region.
