Make an impact on fisheries science - develop assessment methods for data-limited stocks

​ICES is looking for participants for a workshop developing assessment methods for data-limited stocks (DLS).
Published: 10 October 2014

​​​​​​​​​​​​​ICES is working to develop assessment methods for the more than 60% of fish stocks that are data-limited, i.e. without analytical models. As part of this process, the Workshop on the Development of Quantitative Assessment Methodologies based on Life-history traits, exploitation characteristics, and other relevant parameters for data-limited stocks (WKLIFE 4) will meet in Lisbon, Portugal 27–31 October.

WKLIFE will review a technical report on data-poor methods by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and further investigate appropriate methods with respect to the ICES data-limited stock approach. 

​An explanation of the ICES data limited stock approach is described in chapter 1 of the General context for IC​ES advice.​ 

If you are interested in participating or want to find out more, please contact Anne Cooper, Advisory Professional Officer at the ICES Secretariat by 17 October 2014.
