This benchmark workshop is organized to evaluate the current data and assessment methodology for several stocks and to propose improvements outside of the annual assessment environment.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The goal of a benchmark is consensus agreement on an assessment methodology that is to be used in future update assessments. This assessment methodology can be an analytical assessment, but can also be non-analytical, for instance based on trends in an assessment or in a selected set of (survey) indicators, with or without forecasts. The result will be the 'best available' method that ICES advice will be based on. Typically, a stock will be benchmarked every 3–5 years to keep pace with changing situations.​

WKPELA 2018 will deal with the following stocks:

  • Herring (Clupea harengus) in subdivisions 20-24, spring spawners (Skagerrak, Kattegat, and western Baltic)
  • Herring (Clupea harengus) in Subarea 4 and divisions 3.a and 7.d, autumn spawners (North Sea, Skagerrak and Kattegat, eastern English Channel)
  • Herring (Clupea harengus) in divisions 7.a South of 52°30’N, 7.g–h and 7.j–k (Irish Sea, Celtic Sea, and southwest of Ireland)
  • Anchovy (Engraulis encrasicolus) in Division 9a (Atlantic Iberian Waters)

A benchmark meeting is open to experts and stakeholders, and is reviewed by external experts throughout the process. A benchmark process takes about five to seven months of preparation and includes a data evaluation workshop and a final benchmark meeting.​
