Species - Country Pair Performance


GAPI scores reveal tremendous variation in environmental performance across species-country pairs , countries, and species. Normalised species-country scores range from a very low score of 10 (groupers from Indonesia) to a mediocre score of 73 (Chinook salmon from New Zealand), with an average score of 53. Asian countries account for the 15 lowest species-country scores, while leading scores show no clear geographic bias. With a peak score of 73, ample room remains for improvement across the board. Similarly, on a cumulative level (accounting for volume of production), GAPI species-country scores range from a peak score of 96 (turbot from France) to a low of 19 (Japanese seabass from China).

By observing the range of species-country scores that contributes to the aggregate species scores, we can better understand the factors determining environmental performance. For instance, the data reveal an inverse relationship between species scores and volatility in the species-country scores associated with those species. Of the 20 species examined, those that exhibit the most variation within their species-country scores are the red seabream (ranked 16th), bastard halibut (11th), and groupers (20th). On the flip side, top-ranking species show low volatility. For example, one of the higher-scoring species—Atlantic salmon—has species-country scores differing by only six points despite significant biotic, geographic, and regulatory differences. This trend suggests that improvements can be readily accomplished at the lower end of the performance spectrum, but that improvements may depend more on innovation at the upper end.
