Observations are essential to support all marine science and advice.

​​The Ecosystem Observation Steering Group is responsible for guiding and supporting Expert Groups that are meeting immediate data demands and contributing to the running and further development of effectively co-ordinated, integrated, quality assured and cost-effective monitoring in the ICES region and beyond.

Topics covered include:

  • Evaluating and optimising survey design to meet the needs of member countries and support advisory requests
  • Design, planning and co-ordination of egg and larval, acoustic and trawl surveys
  • Identifying and evaluating new technologies for observation and monitoring
  • Advising on the design, deployment and efficiency of sampling methods and gears and the use of resulting data for assessment and advice
  • Aging and estimating life history parameters of sampled fauna
  • Developing monitoring to meet emerging data, science and advisory needs, with a focus on integrated ecosystem assessment and ecosystem-based management
