Report of the Working Group on Multispecies Assessment Methods (WGSAM)
Three meetings were held between 2013 and 2015 (Stockholm, London and Woods Hole). WGSAM has been making significant contributions required to enable ICES to develop its capability to give advice on the ecosystem impacts of fishing and climate change. This is a priority area identified in the ICES strategic plan and is consistent with scientific needs to support implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy and Marine Strategy Framework Directive..
