Abstract
    Humans have harvested fish resources for thousands of years, but only during the past century has the development of new fishing technologies produced detrimental impacts on fishery resources. The relative importance of commercial fisheries in regulating populations and marine ecosystems has increased dramatically. Over the same time period a worldwide aquaculture industry has developed, and within a few decades the production of farmed fishes will presumably exceed landings of wild fishes. The rapidly changing technology in both fisheries and aquaculture challenges fishes exposed to human impact in novel ways that differ from those that threaten their survival in their ancestral environments.
