Fish as a source of foodborne bacteria
A significant part of the global population depends on fish for both survival and health.

It may not only have an impact on the health of fish, but also raise safety concerns regarding the human consumption of fish. Although fish and fish products are well known to have a great nutritional value, it is crucial to be aware of the risk associated with their consumption, as they are among the main sources of foodborne bacteria.
