Blonde ray (Raja brachyura) in Division IXa (west of Galicia, Portugal, and Gulf of Cadiz)
Based on ICES approach to data-limited stocks, ICES advises that annual catches should not be increased from current levels. Based on estimated species-specific landings, this would imply landings of no more than 200 t in each of 2015 and 2016. Discards have not been quantified and there is some discard survival.
