Haddock in Division VIb (Rockall)
ICES advises on the basis of the MSY approach that catches should be no more than 4310 t in 2015. If discard rates (at age) do not change from the average of the last eight years (2006–2013), this implies landings of no more than 2930 t.
Further management measures should be introduced to reduce the discards, catches of small haddock, and to protect the incoming recruitment in 2013.
