reportposted on 2013-06-21, 00:00 authored by ICESICES
ICES has evaluated the current biological precautionary reference points and considers that Blim = 45 000 t is appropriate. ICES recommends that a precautionary harvest rate HRpa = 0.46 replaces the current Fpa.
ICES concludes that the harvest control rule for Icelandic haddock in the request is precautionary and in accordance with the ICES MSY approach.
