The Rome meeting was a diplomatic success for the United States, another high-water mark of Wilbert Chapman’s personal influence and, as maximum sustainable yield (MSY) would come to be implemented, a disaster for fisheries science. This chapter discusses the legacies from the Rome meeting as well as the implementation of the MSY and the criticisms leveled against it.

Keywords:   Rome, United States, Wilbert Chapman, maximum sustainable yield, fisheries science
