The group found that aquaculture has not fully realized its potential as a source of food, nutrition and income generation due to the metrics or tools for understanding and as-sessing the social and economic impacts not being available. Thus, one of the issues therein is the question of availability and applicability of data that would help to assess aquaculture in an inclusive manner. It was found, that more often than not, available data is not regarded as being of relevance to aquaculture, and/or not being collected at the appropriate scale level to generate meaningful information needed for decision-making and governance of the sector.
