The Global Fishing Index (GFI) is an ongoing, global study that measures country-level progress towards ending overfishing and restoring fish stocks to biologically sustainable levels (SDG 14.4).

The Index reports on both the state of fish stocks and fisheries governance for over 140 maritime countries, providing a means of identifying global priority areas for action, as well as key policy gaps at the regional and national level. The Global Fishing Index will be published in May 2021 and updated every two years through the Decade of Ocean Science (and beyond) to track improvements in fisheries sustainability.
