ICES advises on the basis of the MSY approach that catches in 2014 should be no more than 5251 t. Discards are considered to be low and all catches are therefore assumed to be landed.

ICES advises that activities that have a negative impact on the spawning habitat of herring, such as extraction of marine aggregates and marine construction on the spawning grounds, should not occur.
