Scientific Advice

Single-stock exploitation boundaries

The new information available for kitefin shark (Dalatias licha) in the North Atlantic is too sparse to revise the advice from 2006. The advice for 2009 and 2010 is therefore the same as the advice given in 2006: “This stock is managed as part of the deep-sea shark fisheries. No targeted fisheries should be permitted unless there are reliable estimates of current exploitation rates and sufficient data to assess productivity.
