Fish stocks in the North Atlantic are rebuilding, calling for exploitation that ensures ecological, social and economic sustainability. A working group of the Nordic Marine Think Tank (NMTT) has evaluated how to estimate fishing pressure that leads to maximum sustainable yield (MSY). The objective of the FMSY project is to identify FMSY values based on ecosystem functioning, for different fish stocks, and through this bridge a gap between the science available and management. Along with invited scientists, stakeholders and managers the working group will present and discuss FMSY reference points at a final symposium in October 10-11 in Copenhagen.
Find more information about the project on the FMSY website and the symposium in the attached flyer.
