Wild caught fishery

The amount of seafood captured in a sustainable way.
This sub-goal assesses the amount of wild-caught seafood that can be sustainably harvested. The population biomass (the weight of fish in the ocean) of each landed stock is compared to the biomass that can deliver the stock’s maximum sustainable yield. The geometric mean of the values for all stocks in an area, each weighted by its proportional contribution to the total catch, gives the overall fisheries stock status for that area.

About this score

The goal target is for regions to have their biomass of wild stocks within 5% of the amount that can sustainably deliver the maximum sustainable yield. Regions are penalized for both under- or over-harvesting. Penalties for under-harvesting are half as large as for over-harvesting.
This method is a change from that used in 2012 and is explained further in Methods.
Current Score
The current score indicates Israel is significantly below its sustainable target values. Israel is jeopardizing their future landings with unsustainable yields.

Most of the israeli fishery catch is undersized fish that are discarded
