ICES advises that when the MSY approach is applied, catches in 2023 should be no more than 2432 tonnes.

Management of turbot and brill under a combined species TAC prevents effective control of the single-species exploitation rates and could lead to the overexploitation of either species. ICES advises that management should be implemented at the species level.
