Cod (Gadus morhua) in subdivisions 22–24, western Baltic stock (western Baltic Sea)
ICES advises that when the MSY approach is applied, catches of the western Baltic cod stock in 2016 should be no more than 7797 tonnes. This includes recreational catch but does not include catches of the eastern Baltic cod stock in the Western Baltic area (Subdivisions 22–24). If some eastern Baltic stock catches are allocated to the Western Baltic area (Subdivisions 22–24)TAC, a sub-TAC should be given for Subdivisions 22–23 to protect the western Baltic cod stock.
