Workshop on the Development of the ICES approach to providing MSY advice for category 3 and 4 stocks

​​​​​​​​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:

  1. Defining a set of criteria for the identification of category 3 and 4 stocks that should be candidates for full analytical assessment with forecast,  and identifying some candidate stocks.
  2. Developing the basis and key principles of an ICES MSY advice rule for category 3 and 4 stocks.
  3. Identifying and outlining suitable methods (including model development and testing) and advice rule(s).
  4. Proposing modified ToRs for WKLIFE VII, ICES venue for data-limited methods development, as required, to review and test methods.
  5. Identifying a timeline and work plan(s).​
