The maximum sustainable yield (MSY) became part of American foreign and domestic policy in 1949, when it was formally adopted by the State Department as the goal of American fisheries policy. It is described as a step forward in fish conservation, in which harvest must be managed to avoid the decline of fish stocks. The goal of this book is to examine the political history of maximum sustainable yield and its role in the management of harvest from the oceans.
