The Advisory Committee (ACOM) translates ICES science into advice on the sustainable use and protection of marine ecosystems.

​​​​​​​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 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 the 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. The committee is composed of one representative from each of our member countries. ​
