Report of the Study Group on life history of Nephrops
The Study Group (SG) on Life Histories of Nephrops was established in 1994. The group last met in La Coruna in May1998 and a report of the meeting was presented at the last annual conference (ICES, 1998). The report dealt with arange of biological issues and listed a series of recommendations for areas of future work. Some of these wereconsidered by ACFM and Terms of Reference (TOR) were added to the schedule of work for the 1999 meeting of theICES Nephrops Working Group. In addition, TOR were drawn up for the Study Group to consider by correspondencein the light of Working Group findings. Since, however, the meeting of the Working Group was fairly late in the year,there has been little time to take some of the issues forward.
