Note: Fish catch data for 2010 shows a substantial upward revision from 94.3 to 116.7 thousand metric tons, based on the fish collection data by vessel, newly available at the MOFA. Some vessesls had not reported catch data while reporting collection. Hence this ajustment could not be  brought to previous years catch data to make it consistent.
