ICES advises on the basis of ICES approach to data-limited stocks that catches should be no more than 410 t. If discard rates do not change from the recent average (2008–2011), this implies landings of no more than 383 t. 

To protect the stock in this functional unit (FU), management should be implemented at the functional unit level.
