In 2017 ICES will begin a major initiative to develop an advice and assessment framework for MSY advice that extends beyond stocks with full analytical assessments and short-term forecasts to “data-limited” ICES category 3 and 4 stocks.
WKMSYcat34 will meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, 6-10 March 2017. The workshop is open to all interested participants.
At the workshop, we will develop a work plan, including a roadmap, for the development of a framework for ICES MSY-based advice on fishing opportunities for category 3 and 4 stocks and for the improvement of the scientific assessment of some of these stocks; this workshop is the first step of the process.
Terms of reference for the workshop include:
