Meeting dates: 7-10 October 2024 (tbc)
Venue: ICES HQ, Copenhagen

The ​Workshop on Fish of Bycatch Relevance according to its Terms of Reference, will review and evaluate the criteria established at WKCOFIBYC that were applied to develop and propose a Regional Assessment list of fish species (RAL) and Regional Bycatch list of fish species (RBL).

WKFIBRE will gather the necessary expertise and provide new scientific justification to support the establishment of updated lists of fish species of bycath relevance by ecoregion. The work carried out by WKFIBRE is to support the ICES process of updating its Roadmap for Endangered Protected (ETP) species bycatch, including the lists of ETP species of bycath relevance (Annexes 1 and 2 in the roadmap).

The final regional list of species will be internally reviewed by ICES Advisory Committee (ACOM) and will be incorporated into the ICES Roadmap for Endangered Threatened and Protected Species bycatch.

The WKFIBRE meeting will take place in Copenhagen, with possibility to join online.


All ICES workshops are open for participation. Participants from public institutes, universities, governments, international organizations and conventions, public consultative bodies, industry organizations, and environmental NGOs, as well as interested individuals, are welcome to join and contribute with their expertise.

If the workshop is oversubscribed, ICES reserves the right, in consultation with the workshop chairs, to select the final workshop participants based on their expertise, gender and geographical distribution.​​​
