Scientific Advice

Single-stock exploitation boundaries

The new landings, cpue, and survey data available for this stock do not change the perception of the stock and do not give reason to change the advice from 2007 and reiterated in 2008. The advice on this stock for the fishery in 2010 is therefore the same as the advice given in 2008 for the 2009 fishery:Catches should be restricted to 4800 t (mean catches from the period 1988–2006 excluding 1995, 1998, 2001, and 2002, the years where catches were probably influenced by exceptionally high recruitment). This level should be maintained until the response of the stock to the fishery is known.“

In addition, ICES offers the following considerations:

It is important that surveys are continued, in particular the spring acoustic survey and the recently initiated egg survey. It has not been possible to provide a reliable analytic assessment for this stock as a basis for management. A better alternative would be to consider management rules based directly on survey observations.
