Myfish aims to develop Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) indicators that ensure high levels of fishery yield while respecting ecological, economic and social sustainability


TITLE: Maximising Yield of Fisheries while Balancing Ecosystem, Economic and Social Concerns
GRANT AGREEMENT NO: 289257
PROGRAMME: FP7, Cooperation, Food, Agriculture and Fisheries, and Biotechnology
INSTRUMENT: Collaborative project
TOTAL BUDGET: €6,513,288
EC CONTRIBUTION: €4,999,999
DURATION: March 2012 – February 2016 (48 months)
COORDINATOR: National Institute of Aquatic Resources, Technical University of Denmark (DTU Aqua), Denmark
CONSORTIUM: 31 partners from 12 countries
WEBSITE: www.myfishproject.eu

The MSY concept was proposed as the basis for managing fish stocks by the 2009 Green Paper on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). MSY is the maximum yield that can be derived from a renewable resource over a prolonged period of time. The goal is to achieve MSY by 2015.

Myfish will provide definitions of MSY variants and will redefine the term ‘sustainable’ to signify that Good Environmental Status (GES), as foreseen in the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), is achieved and economically and socially unacceptable situations are avoided.
