Fishing for Food

Fishing for Food

The 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights, states that the right to food is not an option but a moral and legal obligation for States. States have to respect, protect and fulfil the right to food. If a state puts in place excessive taxes on fish trade, it could severely diminish the income of subsistence fishers and affect their economic accessibility for purchasing food. This equates to the direct violation of the 'Right to Food' of subsistence fishers. From ancient times, fish has been an important source of protein food. Those who harvest fish cannot live on fish alone. Fish has been relished for centuries being an important component of food for both the rich and poor.
