The Workshop met from 25 February to 1 March 2013 and was divided into two events. On
25 February, members convened for an industry-science workshop at the ICES secretariat
in Copenhagen to assess what fisheries could offer in terms of data collection
for Northeast Atlantic Mackerel, and from 26 February to 1 March WKNAMMM headed
to the Danish coastal town of Hirtshals to experiment with and evaluate new
survey methodologies for the species.
Headquarters workshop comprised of representatives of fishing industries of all
coastal states (EU, Iceland, Norway, the Faroe Islands, and Russia) as well as
experts on science-industry partnerships, survey techniques, and stock
assessment and advice. For the Hirsthals workshop, WKNAMMM was joined by
experts on new surveys for stock assessment and advice survey techniques, and
gear properties as well as representatives from mackerel fishing industries.
