What is fish sauce?

The Honey Glazed Shrimp was a hit with my husband. I made it along with the Asian Garlic Green Bean dish. The two dishes went well together. Also, for the shrimp dish, I only added 1 tablespoon of Fish Oil as I didn't want the dish to be too salty. Won't add more the next time as the dish was perfect. Thanks.
