    Fisheries and aquaculture are important sources for food and livelihoods for more than one billion people in the world. The waterways and oceans cover about two thirds of the surface of the earth and it forms the most underutilised natural resource when it comes to food production. The fact that aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food production technology indicates not only that one has started to exploit this potential but also if man succeeds in using the oceans more efficiently, aquaculture can be the largest single contributor to less pressure on land.
