Revisions of MSY were calculated by pro-rating existing estimates by increases in bed area, or by application of the Gulland method, where MSY = B x m x 0.4 (Gulland, 1974), where B = biomass and m = mortality.
The MSY estimates from Fox model 42.79 tonnes, R2 =0.85 and Schafer model, 34.12 tonnes, R2 =0.79.
Kevin Dolliole, MSY's director of aviation, explained: "Concourse A was added in 2017.
The MSY estimated value from ASPIC from Fox and logistic model were 3652 (R2=0.8) and from logistic model were 2962 (R2=0.799), respectively.
Since the popularization of the concept of MSY by Schaefer (1954), fisheries science has seen a controversial debate about the usefulness (or lack thereof) of MSY in managing fisheries (e.g., Larkin, 1977; Mace, 2001; Punt & Smith, 2001).
Therefore by choice of threshold value (MSY effort) we may harvests the fish population to MSY.

The total allowable catches (TACs) for the Baltic sea for the pelagic stock (herring and sprat) for the Central Baltic, Gulf of Riga and the Gulf of Bothnia correspond to the maximum sustainable yield (MSY, or the rate of capture allowing for the renewal of the species) for 2014, with the exception of the TAC for herring in the Western Baltic, which corresponds to the temporary level in relation to the MSY.
According to this advice, the number of stocks managed at maximum sustainable yield (MSY, which allows the population to be maintained) in the Baltic Sea has risen and will increase from three to five for 2014 compared with 2013.
