The advice given in 2012 for 2013 and 2014 is reiterated for 2015: “Based on ICES approach to data-limited  stocks,  ICES  advises  that  catches  could  be  increased  by  a  maximum  of  20%.  However,  as  species-specific landings data are not complete, it is not possible to quantify the current catch. ICES does not advise that an individual TAC be set for this stock, at present.    

Additional  measures  should  be  identified  that  can  regulate  exploitation.  Such  measures  may  include  seasonal  and/or  area  closures,  technical  measures,  and  tailored  measures  for  target  fisheries.  Such  measures  should  be  developed  through stakeholder consultations, considering the overall mixed fisheries context.”
