Fish stock advice

The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) has published a popular version of its fish stock advice for 2014.

Anne Cooper, ICES advisory programme professional officer, said: “The popular advice attempts to reach a broader audience – it describes the fisheries and the fish populations they rely on, using a format that is intended to be accessible for the general public.”

This digest of the ICES advice is provided for 104 stocks in European waters, including stocks in the Baltic Sea, the Bay of Biscay and Iberian waters, the Celtic Sea, and the North Sea.

Every year, ICES provides advice to national governments and competent authorities, such as the European Commission (EC), the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM) and the North East Atlantic Fisheries Commission (NEAFC), on environmental issues and the status of fish and invertebrate stocks in Northeast Atlantic waters.

The authorities use this information to establish fisheries catch allowances and other conservation and management measures.
