Expansion of global sea cucumber fisheries buoys exports

Abstract : The sea cucumber fisheries have expanded during the past two decades, at a faster rate than the management capacity. The exploitation is now qualified as 'serial' and 'contagious'. I present the most recent trends from the last six years of the FAO capture data. Hong Kong remains the most important market for the imports and re-exports of the processed products, mainly the dry " trepang " (or bêche-de-mer), but also other product forms, which raised difficulties for the analysis. The catches still increase. with new countries developing export fisheries, species targeted change and new products are traded.
