Management works – the benefits of ending overfishing

poseidon-logo“This Poseidon report was commissioned by The Pew Charitable Trusts as part of its ongoing campaign to end overfishing in the waters of north-western Europe. The European Union Common Fisheries Policy has committed to ensuring fishing occurs at sustainable levels – the Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) – by 2015 where possible and for all stocks by 2020. This report highlights examples where fisheries management has worked to end overfishing, and showcases the resulting benefits, using a case study approach for five fish stocks: haddock in the North Sea, plaice in the Eastern English Channel, horse mackerel in Atlantic Iberian waters, herring in the North Sea, and nephrops in Skagerrak and Kattegat. These examples show that well-managed fisheries lead to healthy fish stocks and result in a cascade of positive outcomes, including increased income to fishers and reduced impacts on the wider environment. Other benefits relate to improved efficiency: as fish stocks recover from overfishing, the time and fishing effort required to catch the same amount of fish (catch per unit effort [CPUE]) reduces.”
