The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization defines sustainable fisheries as resources that can be harvested to meet the needs of today’s generation without compromising the ability of future generations to harvest fish for their needs. A sustainable fishery requires the conservation of fish stocks and the preservation of the marine environment but still allows the fishing industry to remain economically viable and fishing communities to maintain their social and cultural heritage.
