sustainable fish harvest.
"A biological fish stock is a group of fish of a single species that live in the same geographic area and mix enough to breed with each other when mature. A management stock may refer to a biological stock, or a multispecies complex that is managed as a single unit. The Sustainable Fish Harvest indicator compares harvest rates with established harvest limits. These limits are based on scientific information, providing a direct measure of whether we are managing the use of these resources within ecosystem limits. The Sustainable Fish Harvest indicator measures compliance with harvest limits as a measure of pressures on wild fish stocks"--Description, p. 8.
