The ornamental fish sector is a widespread and global component of international trade, fisheries, aquaculture, and development. Statistics reported to FAO from member States indicate that the world export value in 1998 of ornamental fish was US$174 million, with imports valued at US$257 million.
Since 1985 the value of international trade in exports of ornamentals has increased at an average growth rate of approximately 14% per year. Developing countries account for about two-thirds of the total export value. The entire industry, when the non-exported product, wages, retail sales, and associated materials are considered, has been estimated to be worth around US$15 billion.
