For thousands of years fish have been eaten by humans. In the early stages, primitive hooks and nets were used to catch fish and that tradition continues in some parts of the world today.

Freshly caught and then fire-baked fish is well worth the effort of a few hours fishing. Ask any fisherman about the taste of fresh fish compared to canned fish, battered fish or defrosted fish and discover for yourself the benefits of fresh fish, at least once a week. Fresh fish, kept on ice, is fish that has been caught less than one day ago.
