    The journey from trawler to table (or farm to fridge in the case of aquaculture)can be swift or extended. In many developing countries the path is usually short with the catch being sold fresh from the quay-side or beach or in an adjacent market. However, the fish chain is extended when processing - curing, smoking, pickling, salting, drying, freezing or burying - is undertaken, although the destination of the final transformed product may remain local. Canning - preserving and protecting the final product- affords additional commercial opportunities, while the despatch of fish to inland or overseas markets further lengthens the chain.
