Blue ling (Molva dypterygia) in Division Vb and Subareas VI and VII
Based on the ICES approach for data-limited stocks, ICES advises that catches should be no higher than 3900 t in 2013. Existing management measures should be continued. Spatial management to prevent targeted fishing on spawning aggregations should be expanded to cover spawning areas in Division VIb.
