ICES advises that when the MSY approach is applied, and assuming that discard rates and fishery selection patterns do not change from the average of 2013–2015, catches in 2017 should be no more than 489 tonnes. This implies landings of no more than 456 tonnes.
To ensure that the stock in functional unit (FU) 17 is exploited sustainably, management should be implemented at the functional unit level.
