ICES has evaluated the current biological precautionary reference points and considers that Blim = 61 000 t. Bpa, Flim, and Fpa are not defined. HRMSY is estimated to be in the range of 0.20 to 0.25; the higher values within this range are expected to result in probabilities greater than 0.05 that SSB< Blim. No changes to the current MSY reference points are proposed. ICES concludes that the harvest control rule for Icelandic saithe in the request is precautionary and in accordance with the ICES MSY approach.
