The Working Group on Widely Distributed Stocks (WGWIDE) compiles and analyses data regarding stocks of whiting, mackerel, herring, and boarfish in order to provide the basis for the annual ICES Advice regarding the stock status and fisheries.

​​​​The analysis will, for those stocks where sufficient data are available, consist of a stock assessment which will then lead to a forecast of catch options for the year ahead. For stocks where the data do not make such an analysis possible, other approaches will be used, such as analysis of trends in abundance estimates or catches.

WGWIDE is chaired by David Miller and will meet from 27 August to 2 September 2013 at the ICES Headquarters in Copenhagen. 

The working group is open to observers from competent authorities. Details about how to join can be found in the guidelines for observers.
