Advice and Scenarios Database (ASD)

ICES advice on fishing opportunities and catch scenarios tables can be viewed and downloaded through this database


ICES provides scientific advice on ecosystem services and effects to governments and international regulatory bodies that manage the North Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas. The key advice values and catch scenarios from fishin​g opportunity advice sheets  that are published in the ICES library can be accessed on this page.
