Abstract

Fish is a food that over history has gained glorious significance. Commercial fishing transcended subsistence fishing. Though initially it was a constructive development, with heavy intensification the sustainability of marine capture fisheries is at stake now. Proper management in some countries alone is not sufficient to rebuild the overfished stocks. On the other hand, inland capture fisheries still remain under exploited. Keeping all this in view, this article assesses the current status of global capture fisheries on the basis of fish capture statistics published by FAO and strongly insists the need to contribute to Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14). With appropriate interventions we can soon rebuild as well as develop our world fisheries stocks to ensure proteinaceous food security for the future generation.
