At the 70th statutory Meeting in Copenhagen, it was decided (C.Res.1982/2:5:1Z) that the Mackerel Working Group (Chairman: Dr J Gueguen) should meet at ICES headquarters from 6 to 13 September 1983 to:

i) assess catch options for the mackerel stocks in Sub-areas II, III, IV, VI, VII, VIII and IX inside safe biological limits,

ii) continue the examination of the relationship between Sub-area IX mackerel and the Western area stock (Subareas VI-VIII),

iii) assess the state of the horse mackerel in Sub-areas VII, VIII and IX,

iv) review which data are available in the Working Group files for evaluating density dependence in the parameters of the models used in fish stock assessment,

v) specify deficiencies in data required for assessments.

In addition, the Group was asked by ACFM to give further information on the frequency of juvenile mackerel in commercial fisheries in the Celtic Sea broken down by statistical rectangles and month in order to advise on the delineation of the closed area in that zone.
