In order to cope with the increasing demand for fishery products, sensitive technological tools are required to
ensure high quality and wholesomeness and to monitor their production process in a sustainable manner while complying
with the strict standards imposed by regulatory authorities. Proteomics may assist the industry as it allows an unbiased approach
in the discovery of biomarkers that could be used to increase our understanding of different biological, physiological
and ecological aspects that may be advantageous in optimizing quality and safety in aquatic species. The aim of this
review is to highlight the potential of cost-effective high-throughput technologies, such as those offered by proteomics using
"on-line" mass spectrometry to improve the efficiency of the industry in identifying biomarkers relevant for safe high
