Abstract

ICES advises that when the precautionary approach is applied, there should be zero catches in all habitats in 2022. This applies to both recreational and commercial catches and includes catches of glass eels for restocking and aquaculture. All other anthropogenic mortalities should be minimized and eliminated where possible.
