The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act) provides a legal framework for addressing a wide variety of marine stewardship issues. The law mandates an 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.
