Based on the most recent estimates of SSB (in 2009) and fishing mortality (in 2008), ICES classifies the stock as having full reproductive capacity and being harvested sustainably. The SSB has been above Bpa since 1989. Fishing mortality was reduced from above Flim in 1988 to below Fpa in 2000–2002, and has since been around Fpa. Recruitment at age 3 has been at or above average since 2000. The year classes 2004–2006 are estimated to be very strong. Surveys indicate that the year classes 2007 and 2008 are below average
