To meet the increasing global demand for fish and address over-exploitation of natural resources, sustainable management of fisheries and aquaculture is the dire need of the hour. Although two thirds of global fish production comes from the Asia-Pacific region, authentic information on most of the commercially important species is difficult to find and at the best is piecemeal and confusing. AsiaPacific-FishWatch is undertaking the daunting task of finding and collating information on Asia-Pacific species of commercially important fish (including crustaceans, molluscs, echinoderms and plants), their fisheries and aquaculture through the value chain. This information, gleaned and extracted from many publications and personal contributions of experts will be a boon to scientists, development workers, planners and administrators. Information on four oceanic and one coastal tuna species has been published and further work is in progress.

I congratulate the Asian Fisheries Society and contributing scientists. It is my firm hope that more scientists will join to contribute their knowledge for the sustainable management of the fisheries and aquaculture.
