With the re-authorisation of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (2007), the United States has an updated legal framework for addressing a wide variety of marine stewardship issues. The re-authorised law mandates a date-certain end to overfishing, promotes market-based management, strengthens the role of science, improves data on recreational fisheries, and includes new measures to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and to reduce bycatch in global fisheries.
