Maximum Sustainable Yield in the Common Fisheries Policy

A new briefing produced by ClientEarth's fisheries team emphasises the importance of following scientific advice for sustainable fisheries.

This briefing is a guide to Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY), and will help those involved in managing fisheries make sure they are complying with the law and by limiting fishing to sustainable levels.

It is a legal requirement to limit fishing to levels which will make sure fish stocks will continue to be healthy and productive in the long term, ensuring a sustainable fishing industry and healthy oceans for the future.
