ICES has reanalysed the survey time-series, which is the main source of information for the assessment. This changed the perception of stock status and productivity: The stock appears to be at a historical low. ICES has also evaluated the proposed harvest control rules, and none of them are expected to lead to an increase in stock size by 2025. Therefore, ICES  considers  none  of  these  options  as  being  in  accordance  with  the  precautionary  approach.  It  is suggested  that managers discuss other options with ICES that might be more suitable, including a starting phase to reverse the decline of the stock.
