Report of the Workshop on Assessment and Catch Advice for Deep Pelagic Redfish in the Irminger Sea (WKDEEPRED)
The Workshop on Assessment and Catch Advice for Deep Pelagic Redfish in the Irminger Sea (WKDEEPRED), chaired by Carmen Fernández, ICES, and Jesper Boje, Greenland, met in ICES Headquarters (Copenhagen) from 23–25 August 2016 to conduct appropriate analyses to serve as the basis for providing a response to the NEAFC’s request to ICES “to review the approach that serves as basis for the catch advice for the deep pelagic redfish stock in the Irminger Sea to ensure conformity with ICES advisory rules”. The workshop successfully addressed all its terms of reference: it agreed on a stock assessment method for this stock, calculated reference points and developed a Stock Annex. The workshop additionally conducted a stock assessment and prepared catch advice for 2017 and 2018, in line with its terms of reference.
