The Workshop on update and calculation of the DCF indicators (WKIND), chaired by Leonie Dransfeld (Ireland) met in ICES HQ, Denmark 21–25 October 2013 to examine and report on the DCF indicators of fishing pressures/impacts, update their technical details and carry out the actual analysis for each indicator. The EU Data Collection Framework (EC 199/2008) supports the collection, management and analysis of data which underpins the scientific advice relating to the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). In order to progress the implementation of the ecosystem-based ap-proach to fisheries management, nine pressure and state indicators are included in the DCF, which aim to measure the performance of the CFP in relation to the objectives of ‘minimising the impact of fishing activities on the marine ecosystem’.
