Economically healthy ﬁsheries are fundamental to achieving accepted goals for the ﬁsheries sector, such as improved livelihoods, food security, increased exports, and the restoration of ﬁsh stocks—a key objective of the Plan of Implementation endorsed by the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Anonymous 2002).
