Report of the KMI/APRACA/FAO Regional Workshop on the Effects of Globalization and Deregulation on Marine Capture Fisheries in Asia and the Pacific: Pusan, Republic of Korea, 11-15 October 1999

Series: FAO Fisheries Reports (No. 624)
The findings and recommendations of the Workshop suggest that many countries in Asia and the Pacific benefit from globalization and deregulation.
