The Study Group on Baltic Sea Productivity issues (SGPROD) met January 22–25 in Riga, Latvia. Part of the meeting was organized jointly with the HELCOM MONAS Zooplankton Expert Network (ZEN). The meeting was attended by 17 participants from 8 countries. The group updated the status description of the lower trophic levels in the Baltic Proper and the Gulf of Riga for the year 2007 and winter 2007/2008 for the use of the ICES/HELCOM Working Group on Integrated Assessments of the Baltic (WGIAB) and the Baltic Fisheries Assessment Working Group (WGBFAS). SGPROD summarized the zooplankton indicators developed during the Baltic Sea Regional Project (BSRP). The analysis showed that in the Baltic Sea, zooplankton indicators can contribute to the prediction of fish stock recruitment.
