Seafood has played a significant role in human diet for ages. Fishing and fish farming are nowadays the two most important uses of the sea. Not only do they provide healthy and enjoyable source of food but they create jobs in coastal areas and promote the social and economic well-being as well. Integration of science and relevant data allows integration of policies. This will, in the long run, benefit not only the environment but also the fishing sector because fish resources need healthy marine ecosystems to flourish for the generations to come.
