The second newsletter of the Myfish Project is now available to download from the project’s website: www.myfishproject.eu.

The Myfish project aims to provide an operational framework for the implementation of the Maximum Sustainable Yield (MSY) concept in European waters. This issue of Myfish Project News features a summary of progress made by partners involved in Work Package 1 (WP1) as they collaborate to define a common MSY framework. Additionally, the newsletter features updates and news stories from each of the five Myfish regional case studies (Baltic Sea, Mediterranean Sea, North Sea, Western Waters and Widely Ranging Fish), as well as examples of Decision Support Tables (DSTs) developed as part of the Myfish project. This issue also contains feedback from stakeholders who have participated in recent Myfish meetings and workshops.
