In considering the value and importance of fish in the diet, it first might be well to note a few general factors such as were pointed out by J.L. Kask in Some Aspects of World Fisheries, as follows:"Man depends entirely on living matter . . . for his food, and all life occurs either on land or in the water . . . . The oceans cover about 2 1/2 times as much of the earth as does land . . . . It has been calculated by experts that the marine environment provides about 300 times as much inhabitable space as do the terrestrial and fresh water biocycles together . . . ."Despite the ignorance which persists even today on the qualities of many species contained in the marine and freshwater biocycles, it is yet well-known that boundless and self-renewable fisheries resources exist in nearly every portion of these two areas.
