A Strategy for the Sustainable Use of Bermuda’s Living Marine Resources

Bermuda Government proposed a 15-year strategy to manage Bermuda's fisheries which includes a management plan for each main species, to be reviewed every three to five years. Research will incorporate stock status, spawning aggregation and movement patterns. Age, growth and reproduction studies will help to set minimum legal sizes.

The goal of this Strategy is to provide a blueprint for managing Bermuda's marine resources over the next 15 years so as to encourage a sustainable and economically viable fishing industry, promote healthy marine ecosystems, and ensure that the interests of all those who have a stake in the marine environment are represented.
