Megrim (Lepidorhombus whiffiagonis) in Divisions VIIIc and IXa (Cantabrian Sea, Atlantic Iberian Waters)
ICES advises on the basis of the MSY approach that catches in 2016 should be no more than 186 tonnes. If discard rates do not change from the average of the last five years (2010–2014), this implies landings of no more than 172 tonnes. Combined catches of Lepidorhombus boscii and Lepidorhombus whiffiagonis should be no more than 1259 tonnes and landings should be no more than 1013 tonnes in 2016.
