Fisheries and the National Food Security: the Malaysian perspective
Ambak, Mohd Azmi (2000) Fisheries and the National Food Security: the Malaysian perspective.
Fisheries constitute one of nature’s renewable, highly diverse and dynamic agricultural resources. These resources exist in an aquatic environment that are subjected to an ever increasing degradation, notably pollution. They represent an extremely valuable commodity,much sought after for food, ornaments and recreational purpose.
