WGALES aims for the cross fertilization of ideas, methodologies, developments, and standardization of ichthyoplankton surveys in the ICES area as well as providing a platform from which to improve the assessments based on the ichthyoplankton surveys.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The activities of WGALES are vital for the delivery of state-of-the-art ichthyoplankton surveys, ensuring high standards, and incorporating new techniques and developments for the future.  

Several ichthyoplankton surveys are carried out within the ICES areas; these are all coordinated by their own expert group. In the past these groups worked on their own and there was little exchange of ideas, techniques, and developments between them. WGALES now provides a forum for discussion and dissemination on matters pertaining to spawning dynamics, ichthyoplankton biology, ecology, surveys, and egg and larval production methods. Each of the ichthyoplankton survey specific working groups continues with their survey planning and reporting. WGALES also provides an interface for SCICOM and ACOM for matters concerning ichthyoplankton surveys.

WGALES was established in 2013. The group meets generally once every two years. WGALES meetings are in the form of workshops to exchange developments of methods and discuss quality assurance issues. Through review and standardization, the high quality of the ichthyoplankton surveys can be assured and maintained.
