It will be apparent, from this discussion of domestic and international fisheries, that we have been only partially successful at maintaining the yield. Of the fisheries discussed here, only Alaska salmon, Gulf of Mexico shrimp, and Chesapeake Bay blue crab have been held at maximum levels. Even these fisheries cannot be assured of continued high yields, either because their apparent high yields are caused by unusually favorable conditions in the environment which cannot be expected to last forever, or because the inshore environment is important to all, and this environment is no longer free of man-made pollution and other stresses.
