The Working Group on Fishery Systems met at ICES headquarters in Copenhagen from 11-14 October. This year Dorothy Dankel (Norway) took over for Kjellrun Hiis Hauge (Norway) as Chair. We were an intimate group with seven (effectively six) participants. The meeting was focused on two main tasks: 1) presentations from par-ticipants directly related to our ToRs, and 2) drafting and writing a manuscript on the history and future of WGFS for submission to ICES Journal of Marine Science, spe-cifically related to ToR a) and ToR b). The rest of this section is a shortened and un-referenced version of the manuscript. This year, the Working Group on Fishery Systems celebrates 10 years since it was established by ICES, inter alia “to develop a framework and methodology for the analysis of fishery system performance” and “propose ... interdisciplinary research which will advance ICES future capability in fishery systems analysis” . The WGFS created a forum to bring social scientists into ICES to help describe the socio-ecological system around fisheries, and to use this perspective to intensify ICES effec-tiveness.
