Whether you live in a coastal area or not, many  people enjoy eating seafood. In fact, preparing a healthy fish dish, or dining out at a high-end seafood restaurant, can be considered such luxuries, it's hard to imagine fish ever going to waste. Luxury aside, in some parts of the world, seafood is an integral source of nutrition and dietary staple. Unfortunately, according to a new report from the UN Food and Agriculture Administration, one in three fish caught never makes its way to a plate.
