Management Objectives

There are two Functional Units in Division IIIa: Skagerrak (FU 3) and Kattegat (FU 4). The advice for 2009 is biennial and valid for 2009 and 2010 (see ICES, 2008).

The 2008 assessment had lead to the conclusion for the two FUs in Division IIIa that, given the apparent stability of the stocks, the current levels of exploitation appeared to be sustainable. The most recent assessment data compiled in 2009 do not indicate any changes in the state of the stock.
