Flounder (Platichthys flesus) in subdivisions 22 and 23 (Belt Seas and the Sound)
The available information on stock structure, discards and the uncertainties in age-reading are inadequate to establish reliable assessments and evaluate stock trends. Therefore the state of the stock is unknown and there is no basis for an advice.
Further development of age-reading exchange programs and discard sampling and analyses is required for analytical assessments of this stock in future
