Report of the North Sea Herring Assessment Working Group
The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, acting on a general concern expressed at the NEAFC Meeting in May 1968 about the North Sea herring fisheries, invited its Pelagic Fish (Northern) Committee to set up a Working Group to review the present state of the North Sea herring stocks and to discuss measures for the improvement of the fisheries exploiting them. At the Statutory Meeting in Copenhagen in October 1968 such a Working Group was appointed with Mr J J Zijlstra (Netherlands) as Chairman. At the next Statutory Meeting in Dublin in September October 1969, after a preliminary report of the Working Group (ICES, C.M.1969/H:4) had been discussed, it was decided that a second meeting of the Working Group was necessary, to allow completion of its work.
