This is the first time that ICES analyses data for sprat in the Celtic Sea and West of Scotland. Currently there is no TAC for this species in this area, and it is not clear whether there should be one or several management units. There is insufficient information to evaluate the status of sprat in this area. Therefore, based on precautionary consideration, ICES advises that catches should not be allowed to increase in 2012.
