Fisheries and Resources Monitoring System

FIRMS fact sheets disseminate reports on status and trends of Marine Resources and Fisheries as per information contributed by the FIRMS Partners. Unavailability of reports or outdated reports simply reflect gaps in monitoring capacity. The following table counts the overall number of marine resources and fisheries fact sheets by FAO Major Fishing Areas.
