In spite of a worldwide expansion in fish farming, only limited progress has been made in the compilation of statistical data to indicate trends and the rate of growth. The lack of specialized enumerators, the unwillingness or inability of producers to provide detailed information, the widely scattered location of production units and areas, and the lack of interest and unwillingness to finance the collection of usable data by some countries have all contributed to this scarcity.
