Based  on  the  ICES  approach  to  data-limited  stocks,  ICES  advises  that  catches  should  be  reduced  by  20%.  Based  on  estimated species-specific landings this would imply landings of 94 t in each of 2015 and 2016. Discards are known to take place but have only been quantified partially and there is some discard survival.
