ICES advises on the basis of the MSY approach that catches should be no more than 15 140 tonnes in 2015. ICES advises, under precautionary considerations, 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.
