ICES approach to advice on fishing opportunities integrates the precautionary approach with the objective of achieving maximum sustainable yield (MSY), unless otherwise requested. The aim is, in accordance with the aggregate of international guidelines, to inform policies for high, long-term yields while maintaining productive fish stocks in marine ecosystems that meet expected environmental standards (e.g. good environmental status [GES] in the EU).
