About this score

Artisanal fishery is limited by fish resources in Israel. The exploitation status of coastal fish species was calculated using the exploitation categories: Developing, Fully Exploited, Overexploited, Collapsed, and Rebuilding. These categories are modeled on those used by the FAO, and calculated using algorithms developed by the Sea Around Us Project, using the current landings relative to the historical peak catch and the trend for each species. 

This score means that the artisanal fishery is in jeopardy, due to overexploitation of fish resources.
