A very large number of species of finfish are used for food by the world's population. The dressing percentage of finfish (60-70%) is similar to that of beef, pork, or poultry. The percentage of edible tissue in the dressed carcasses of finfish (without head, skin, and viscera) is higher than that of other food animals, because fishes contain less bone, adipose tissue, and connective tissue. There are three main categories of finfish that are widely used as foods. The bony fishes (teleosts) provide two compositional categories: white fishes (or lean fishes) and fatty fish. The third category is the cartilaginous elasmobranch fishes.
