Survey of fish resources in the North-East Atlantic
The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) decided at' its 60th Statutory Meeting in 1972 to produce a review of the fish resources within its area, the objective being to present for each of the important fish species a brief description of its life history, fishery and state of exploitation, for the benefit of those persons or authorities dealing with the political problems concerning exploitation, regulation and management of marine resources. The present Report has been produced by the Liaison Committee of ICES on the basis of contributions submitted by scientists from member countries, and joint scientific work carried under the Council's auspices. The Report has been prepared during 1973, and the paragraphs on fishery and state of exploitation of each stock are updated to the beginning of 1973, unless otherwise stated. The Report does not cover all species or stocks in the North-East Atlantic. Some have been omitted either because they are of minor or no importance to the fishery or because very little is known about them at present. Expansion of the Report may be considered when it is revised and updated.
