FISH STOCK

Statistics Directorate    
Definition:
The living resources in the community or population. Use of the term fish stock usually implies that the particular population is more or less isolated from other stocks of the same species and hence self-sustaining. In a particular fishery, the fish stock may be one or several species of fish. In environmental accounting the fish stock of a country includes all stocks which occur within the country’s EEZ and the part of the shared fish stock allocated to the country on the basis of international agreements.
