New data on landings and indices from the two annual Faroese surveys (2011 summer, 2012 spring) do not change the perception of the stock since 2008 and do not give reason to change the advice from 2011. The advice for the fishery in 2013 is  therefore  the  same  as  the  advice  given  since 2008:  “Because  of  the  very  low  stock  size  ICES  advises  that  the  fishery should be closed. Reopening the fishery should not be considered until both survey indices indicate a biomass at or above the average of the period 1996–2002“.
