The 2014 advice for this stock is biennial and valid for 2014 and 2015. New data (landings and surveys) available for this stock do not change the perception of the stock. Therefore, the advice for this fishery in 2015 is the same as the advice for 2014. ICES advises on the basis of precautionary considerations that catches should be no more than 27 554 t.
