Word “fishery” (singular noun, plural noun fisheries) means 1. a place where fish are reared for commercial purposes 2. a fishing ground or area where fish are caught 3. the occupation or industry of catching or rearing fish. On the other hand subject “fisheries”  is the short form of fisheries science.
According to the FAO, a fishery is typically defined in terms of the “people involved, species or type of fish, area of water or seabed, method of fishing, class of boats, purpose of the activities or a combination of the foregoing features”. The definition often includes a combination of fish and fishers in a region, the latter fishing for similar species with similar gear types.
