ACOM responds to requests for advice from ICES member countries, international commissions and organizations, and fisheries and ecosystem management bodies.
The advice is grounded by 10 principles to support ecosystem-based management advice. This ensures that our advice is based on the best available science and data, considered legitimate by both authorities and stakeholders, and relevant and operational to the policy or management challenge in question. ACOM also provides evidence to explore the consequences of trade-offs between objectives.
The committee works with stakeholders to ensure that the advice is understandable and relevant to society.
The leadership of ACOM consists of a Chair and four Vice-Chairs.
ACOM Chair: Mark Dickey-Collas - e-mail
ACOM Vice-Chair: Dorleta Garcia - e-mail
ACOM Vice-Chair: Henn Ojaveer - e-mail
