When it comes to e-goals, MSY is king. The problem with the MSY mantra is that no matter how $hitty the runs get, there's ALWAYS a theoretic mathematical "sustainable" MSY spawner escapement.

How does it play out in real life? History suggests that less begets less.

Does anyone really think we're gonna harvest our way to recovery for any of these depleted runs?
