The need for fisheries management Fish stocks are complex and precious resources. Extensive knowledge and experience of such stocks and the influences upon them is required in order for fisheries to be managed in a sustainable manner.
Management is made difficult by the fact that the resources are largely invisible until harvested, impacts are frequently long-term, and the causes of problems can be hard to identify. Additionally, marine and freshwater species may be migratory, stocks may be shared or straddling between countries or areas, and numbers vary naturally from year to year.
