Status of fish stocks managed by the Community in the Northeast Atlantic
The indicator chosen is the quantity of fish caught in 2005 that was taken from stocks grouped according to whether they were within or outside safe biological limits at the end of the year, i.e. 2006. In general terms, it is considered that a stock is within safe biological limits if its spawning stock biomass is above the value corresponding to a precautionary approach (Bpa) advocated by ICES.
