The General Law of Fisheries and Aquaculture was reformed in 2013. Its main objective is the sustainability of the fisheries, with express reference to the ecosystem approach and the precautionary principle. The Law includes definitions of Biological Reference Points and Maximum Sustainable Yield, a decision making process based on scientific advice, a mandate to elaborate management plans for closed access fisheries and rebuilding plans for overexploited and depleted fisheries.
