ICES benchmark processes are organized to evaluate (and propose improvements to) the current data and assessment methodology for selected stocks and non-fishery topics for which ICES provides recurrent advice outside the annual assessment cycle.

​The goal of a benchmark is to achieve consensus agreement on an assessment methodology that can be regarded as the ‘best available’ method to be used in future update assessments.​

Benchmark processes are open to experts and stakeholders and are reviewed by external experts throughout. For more information, please see the ICES ​Guidelines for Benchmarks.​​​
