Interim Report of the Working Group on Multispecies Assessment Methods (WGSAM)
In this eight report of the pan-regional Working Group on Multispecies Assessment Methods (WGSAM), work focused on five (A, B, C, H) of the multi-annual ToRs. Based on their knowledge, participants provided an updated inventory of progress of multispecies models in ICES Ecoregions (ToR A), noting those regions where no information was available. While none of the participants at this year’s WGSAM was able to provide a verbal update, written contributions highlight that progress is being made with the development of ATLANTIS ecosystem models in ICES several ecoregions: notably the North Sea, Baltic Sea, Eastern Channel and Barents and Norwegian Seas.
