ICES advises that when the precautionary approach is applied, landings in 2016 should be no more than 10 757 tonnes. ICES cannot quantify the corresponding total catches. 

Management  of  the  two  anglerfish  species  under  a  combined  TAC  prevents  effective  control  of  the  single-species exploitation rates and could lead to overexploitation of either species.
