Report of the ICES Advisory Committee on Fishery Management, 2001 Part 1-3
The ICES Advisory Committee for Fishery Management met twice in 2001, 22-31 May and 9-17 October. The fIrst
meeting was held at Hiiljstrnpgard in Helsingør, Denmark while the other was held at the ICES Headquarters, Palregade 2-4, Copenhagen. Attendance is listed on the following pages. ACFM in its advice includes a proposal for how the Precautionary Approach can be interpreted. This proposal is described in the Introduction and the advice given in Chapters 3-6 of the report is based on that proposal. The reports are in response to requests from Management Commissions (EC, IBSFC, NEAFC, and NASCO) and from member countries. The management advice is presented stock by stock in Sections 3 to 6 where also the answers to special requests are given.
The requests from Management Commissions are divided into two parts: recurrent advice that is specifIed by Memorandum of Understanding between the Management Commissions and ICES and Special Requests. Recurrent
advice includes assessment of stock status and management advice for the more important stocks in the Northeast Atlantic. This advice is provided in the same form as used by ICES Advisory Committee for Fishery Management in recent years.
