Scientific Advice

Single-stock exploitation boundaries

Due to its low productivity, roundnose grenadier can only sustain low rates of exploitation. Fisheries on such species should always be accompanied by programmes to collect data on both target and bycatch fisheries. The fishery should not be allowed to expand unless it can be shown that it is sustainable.
Management
