MSY in an European and global context (1.2)

A due-diligence exercise aiming to review existing and proposed MSY variants, constraints and management measures outside EU borders was carried out by Myfish partners. They interviewed stakeholders and analysed fisheries management outwards from the EU (Australia, Alaska and the Faroe Islands) to investigate (as case studies) various aspects of sound governance from which the EU can potentially learn. As a result best practic¬es and lessons learnt - regarding MSY variants, objective (i.e. aim or goal) setting and implementation processes (i.e. means to achieve objectives), including the strengths and weaknesses, constraints and trade-offs – concerning the overall governance system for the particular fishery have been identified. Detailed accessible summaries of these case studies are available here: Newsletter-Issue 1 and
