"The field has gone from one firmly grounded in the stamp collecting mentality to one now based on the idea that the oceans of the world are replete with chemical entities that will potentially cure all of the ailments that beset humanity. The reality actually lies a good distance away from what a relatively small group of academics would have the general population and funding agencies believe. Our oceans and seas abound with food mainly in the form of fish, crustaceans and algae. There are few if any countries that have a coastline that do not take full advantage of the bounty that their oceans have to offer. Each year millions of tons of fish, crustaceans and algae are harvested in the name of food and agriculture. Often, private organizations, industry, private individuals and countries have taken advantage of this resource to the point where complete fisheries have been devastated by over fishing in a few years, while others are constantly embattled by over exploitation, pollution issues and poor management practices.
