The Big Numbers Project is a joint activity of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, World Bank and the WorldFish Center in collaboration with national partners. It is funded through PROFISH, the World Bank’s global program on sustainable fishing. It aims to fill the information gap by providing disaggregated data on capture fisheries. The intention is to support the establishment of procedures that allow for the regular analyses of fisheries’ status and trends. These analyses will inform policy formulation and support the provision of management advice within countries and globally.
