Sustained yield management is now a legal requirement in a number of situations. Application of the concept under the regulatory authority of government requires a refined and workable definition of sustained yield in order to avoid undue hardship upon those regulated.

Suggestions are made to answer some of these questions but many problems remain. In the absence of logical solutions to those problems the best we can do is to recognize fully the implications of our decisions and then to be reasonable.
