“Fisheries are ecologically sustainable – when stocks of both target and non-target species are not overfished … and when the health, natural balance and productivity of marine ecosystems, populations of threatened, endangered or protected species and marine habitats are maintained. A truly sustainable fishery meets the long-term needs of fishermen, consumers and the environment together.” – Tooni Mahto, Australian Marine Conservation Society.
