Taiwan, Republic of China


Overview

Cobia and groupers are the only marine finfish from Taiwan assessed by GAPI. Poor performance within both cobia (35) and grouper culture (28) results in a country score of 30 for Taiwan—the worst score of all 22 countries assessed. However, Taiwan is not alone in its poor performance in cobia and grouper production. In fact, Taiwan outperforms its two competitors in grouper production (China, 15, and Indonesia, 10) and performs within range of the other assessed cobia producer, China (37).

It is important to note that cobia and grouper production only accounted for 35% of the total marine finfish production in Taiwan in 2007. Thus, Taiwan’s score may not be representative of the performance of its entire marine aquaculture industry.
