Scientific Advice

Single-stock exploitation boundaries

The only new information available for these species is landings information and it is not sufficient to change the advice from 2006. The advice for 2009 and 2010 is therefore the same as the advice given in 2006: Fisheries on greater forkbeard should be accompanied by programmes to collect data. The fishery should not be allowed to expand unless it can be shown that it is sustainable.”
