The Working Group on Integrating Ecological and Economic Models (WGIMM) met on 11–12 May 2015 via WebEx to work on the Terms of Reference and to discuss further work from 2015 to 2017. One specific issue was the challenge to organize physical meet-ings with the group. Besides exploring opportunities to meet aside other meetings to increase the opportunities for physical meetings the group also agreed that there is the need for more intersessional work.The work on ToR a) was a continuation of the work performed over the last years on collecting information about coupled models and analysing them. The collection of models has grown to currently 26 analysed models. A short summary of the work is presented in Section 4. The group discussed the planning for the ICES ASC Session “Social, economic, and ecological impact assessment across marine sectors?” and con-tinuing the preparation of the review paper “Evaluation of Integrated Ecological-Eco-nomic Models – Review and Challenges for Implementation” for presentation at the ASC session and subsequent submission to a peer reviewed journal.
