The ICES herring assessment working group (HAWG) met for seven days in March 2019 to assess the state of five herring stocks and three sprat stocks. HAWG also provided advice for seven sandeel stocks but reported on those prior to this meeting in February. The working group conducted update assessments for the five herring stocks. An analytical assessment was performed for the combined North Sea and Division 3.a sprat, and data limited assessments (ICES category 3 and 5) were conducted for English Channel sprat (spr.27.7de) and sprat in the Celtic Sea (spr.27.67a–cf–k).
