Sustainability Notes

Medium. A carefully monitored and policed fishery.

This product is now managed very well both in the USA and the north Atlantic fisheries. Measures include permit requirements, time and area closures, catch limits, and minimum size limits. In 2010, the fishery went to a quota- based management system. A 2015 Seafood Watch report said this move may reduce incentives for illegal fishing and discards in the groundfish fishery, which includes Acadian redfish. Seafood Watch called overall management for this specific fishery moderately effective, namely due to ongoing concerns about managing habitat impacts.
