Kitefin shark (Dalatias licha) in the Northeast Atlantic
The advice given in 2012 for this stock is valid for 2013-2015: “ICES advises on the basis of the precautionary approach that no targeted fisheries should be permitted unless there are reliable estimates of current exploitation rates and sufficient data to assess productivity. There should be no fisheries unless there is evidence thatthis will be sustainable.”
NB: new Advice will be provided in 2015.
