Reduce take of non-target species and immature fish or manage holistically if different fishing sectors focus on different life history phases of the same stock. • Refer to IUCN Red List for threatened species or to footnote. 32 ● ● ● ● ● A Fishery Manager’s Guidebook Large maximum size: Larger species tend to be longer lived, in extreme cases exceeding 100 years but more typically having longevity of several decades, often more. There is a well-documented and strong correlation between vulnerability and large size, and information on maximum body size is readily available for most species.

A well-managed fishery should remove fish at a rate that does not exceed that of replacement but only takes the ‘surplus’ to replacement. This ‘surplus’ is zero in a virgin stock and greatest at the steepest point of the population growth curve, the point at which MSY is produced. In early conventional fisheries management, it was suggested that fisheries management should aim to maintain the stock at this point. However, applications of the original ‘surplus yield’ models were limited in their ability to maintain stocks at MSY because they only used catch and effort data and ignored important biological and ecological attributes of individual target species.
