fish-down
Where a fish stock has not been heavily fished there may be an accumulation of fish in the older age classes. Fishing of such stocks can produce initial high catches that cannot be sustained once the abundance of older fish has been reduced. Removing the older aged fish in this way is termed fish-down.
