Data on the total production from marine capture fisheries of the Southeast Asian countries during 2017–2021 indicated that Indonesia had the highest contribution to the region’s total production. Specifically, in 2021, the production of Indonesia was 6.7 million MT accounting for approximately 37.3 % of the region’s total, followed by Viet Nam with 3.4 million MT (18.9 %), Myanmar with 3.3 million MT (18.4 %), and Philippines with 1.8 million MT (10.0 %). Malaysia and Thailand also produced a considerable volume of aquatic commodities from marine capture fisheries with 1.3 million MT (7.4 %) and 1.3 million MT (7.2 %), respectively. 
The region’s production volume from marine capture fisheries in 2021 by country is presented in the chart below:

Looking at the 2021 production volume from marine capture fisheries by major commodity groups in below table, we can see that marine fishes had the highest volume accounting for about 87.3 % followed by mollusks at 6.5 %, while crustaceans, invertebrates, and seaweeds contributed 4.2 %, 0.4 %, and 0.3 %, respectively. 
It should be noted that 1.3 % was contributed by “other” commodity groups which could not be classified as some countries were not able to provide their respective production volumes by species. From 2020 to 2021, the production volume of crustaceans, seaweeds, and marine fishes decreased by about 12.9 %, 11.9 %, and 0.4 %, respectively, but the production volume of mollusks increased by about 16.6 %.
