Abstract

ICES advises that when the EU multiannual plan (MAP) for the Baltic Sea is applied, catches in 2022 that correspond to the F ranges in the plan are between 214 000 tonnes and 373 210 tonnes. According to the MAP, catches higher than those corresponding to FMSY (291 745 tonnes) can only be taken under conditions specified in the plan, whilst the entire range is considered precautionary when applying ICES advice rule.
