Fish, your industry

Many kinds of fish, shellfish and crustaceans are caught for human consumption. Fish is consumed in almost every region across the globe. It is an important source of protein and other nutrients. The fish sector as an industry is involved with the hunting, farming, processing, conservation, storage, transportation, marketing or sales of fish and/or fish products. We often see a combination of these activities. Ultimately, the product is distributed to retail, hospitality or foodservice outlets, and other food companies at home and abroad.
