New data and assessment available  for this  stock do  not change the  perception of the  stock. Therefore, the  advice for this stock in 2015 is the same as the advice for 2014: Based on ICES approach to data-limited stocks, ICES  advises  that  landings  in  2014 should  be  no  more  than  135  t.  Discards  are  known  to  take  place  but  cannot  be quantified; therefore total catches cannot be calculated.

Plaice  in Division VIIj  are  overexploited  and  heavily  discarded. ICES  advises  that  management  measures  to  reduce discards in the mixed fishery are needed.
