The  2012  advice  for  this  stock wasbiennial  and  valid  for  2013–2014. New data  available do  notchange the perception of this stock. Therefore the advice for this fishery in 2015 is the same as for 2013: ICES advises that  there  should  be  no  directed  fisheries  for  blue  ling,  and  a  reduction  in bycatches  should  be  considered  until the scientific  information is  sufficient  to  prove  the  fishery  sustainable. Measures  should  be  implemented  to  minimize  the bycatch. Closed areas to protect spawning aggregations should be maintained and expanded where appropriate.
