In 2010, WGFE (Working Group on Fish Ecology, D. W. Kulka, Chair) met at IFREMER,Sète France, 6–10 September. Nine participants from five countries (Annex 3)addressed five Terms of Reference (Annex 1). As in previous years, the report isstructured as a single chapter for each ToR. Below, the results of each of the 2010 ToRare summarized and linked to the Science Plan topics (see Annex 2).ToR a (Science Plan links: 1, 2, 3, 8, 14): By combining metrics time trends in Europeanfish communities, the results of a simple food web model suggested that therewas some compensation between species within functional groups and showed thatit is not necessary to focus solely on the complex multi‐species size structure modelsto observe direction of change of populations and community indicators. A wide diversityof impacts, from fishing or resource productivity change was found to haveequal evidence at the population level within each community.
