According to ICES, out of 20 fish stocks with indicators in UK waters, the proportion of stocks at full reproductive capacity and being harvested sustainably has risen from around 10% in the early 1990s to 25% in 2007. This is likely due to a combination of EU controls on total allowable catches and effort, and the decommissioning of vessels in the United Kingdom and some other countries.
