The present advice replaces the advice given for this stock in June 2015.

ICES advises that when the second stage of the EU management plan (Council Regulation No. 676/2007) is applied, catches in 2016  should  be  no  more  than  216  345 tonnes  in  Subarea IV  and  Division IIIa (Skagerrak  part)  combined.  If  discard  rates  do  not change from the average (2012–2014), this implies landings of no more than 159 197 tonnes.
