The advice given in 2012 for this stock is biennial and valid for 2013 and 2014 (see ICES, 2012a):”Based on ICES approach to data-limited stocks, ICES advises that catches should be decreased by 9%. Because the data for catches of lesser-spotted dogfish are not fully documented (due to the historical use of generic landings categories), ICES is not in a position to quantify the result. ICES does not advise that an individual TAC be set for this stock. This is the first year ICES is providing quantitative advice for data-limited stocks.”
