Abstract: The pursuit of sustainable fisheries development as a policy objective has become increasingly important in recent years and policy makers are requiring more information on how to measure progress towards sustainable development goals. In order to accomplish an effective fisheries management, the understanding of how a combination of the aforementioned multiple pressures reduce sustainable limits of harvest is considered a necessity. The multi-species and multi-gears nature of the Mediterranean fisheries hampers the implementation of management processes based on single species analyses. Therefore, the development of methods to integrate information of the fishery systems complexity could be proven advantageous. Among the different approaches, the application of indicators consist a valuable tool for tracking changes and monitoring the implementation of relevant policies. By reviewing the current state of Mediterranean fisheries and linking it to the legal status of fisheries management, a broad spectrum of available indicators, useful for policy, were further considered.
