Summary of the advice for 2019–2020
ICES advises that when the Framework of Indicators (FWI) was applied in 2019 there was no indication of underestimated abundance forecasts. Therefore, a full reassessment was not required in 2019 and the 2018 ICES advice remains valid (ICES, 2018a). Consequently, in line with the management objectives agreed by the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization (NASCO) and consistent with the MSY approach, there are no mixed-stock fishery options at West Greenland for the fishing years 2019 to 2020. The FWI can be applied again at the beginning of 2020, with the returns or return-rate data for 2019, in order to evaluate the appropriateness of the advice for 2020.
