The ICES herring assessment working group (HAWG) met for 8 days in March 2012 to assess the state of 7 herring stocks and 3 sprat stocks/populations. The working group conducted update assessments for five of the herring stocks. No analytical assessments were carried out for the remaining herring stocks although available survey and/or fishery data were examined. An exploratory assessment was performed for North Sea and English Channel sprat but no assessments were possible for any of the IIIa sprat.
