dc.description.abstract"Fisheries has become a victim of its own success. For decades catches just increased and the industry expanded. More and more species became available. With better fish finders, better fishing gears, and better vessels, this seemed to be an endless source of excellent food. And even if capture fisheries has become stagnant, globally consumption has been on the rise due to aquaculture. At present, consumption is at a record high of 17.4 kg/capita. From a nutritional point of view fish is a very important food item. Fish constitutes 20% of intake of animal proteins for 1.5 billion people."en_US
