ICES provides catch advice for the period July to June in the following year. The TAC at present corresponds to the calendar year (January to December). ICES advises that when the MSY approach is applied, catches from July 2016 to June 2017 should be no more than 125 541 tonnes. An in-year revision of the 2016 TAC is required to ensure that exploitation is consistent with the ICES MSY approach.
