The current activities of this workshop are in line with the ICES strategic plan to progress towards integrated ecosystem assessments.

​​​​​​​​​​The work plan for WKIrish is a two year process focussing on improving single-species stock assessments (principally cod, haddock, whiting, plaice, herring), incorporating a mixed fisheries model, and developing the integration of ecosystem aspects and working towards an integrated assessment and advice.

Four workshops will address:

WKIrish1 (September 2015): Information sharing and scoping

WKIrish2 (September 2016): Data evaluation workshop

WKIrish3 (30 January–3 February 2017): Stock assessment benchmark

WKIrish4 (23–27 October 2017): Workshop on stakeholder input to and parameterization of, ecosystem and foodweb models in the Irish Sea aimed at a holistic approach to the management of the main fish stocks

WKIrish5 (late autumn 2018): Towards development of an integrated ecosystem assessment and advice.

The work will focus on resolving stock assessment issues for the following stocks:

  • Irish Sea Cod-Division 7.a;
  • Irish Sea Haddock-Division 7.a;
  • Irish Sea Herring-Division 7.a North of 52º30’N;
  • Irish Sea Plaice-Division 7.a; and
  • Irish Sea Whiting-Division 7.a.

Irish Sea sole will be incorporated in the development of mixed fisheries and integrated assessment and advice.
