The Working Group on Integrated Assessments of the North Sea (WGINOSE) met in Copenhagen 10–13 March 2014. The meeting was chaired by Andrew Kenny (UK). There were nine participants representing six nations which were the same as the 2013 meeting. WGINOSE is a working group which works to develop the science-base for Integrated Ecosystem Assessments (IEA) in the North Sea. The group works towards this goal in cooperation with similar groups within the ICES SCICOM Scien-tific Steering Group on Integrated Ecosystem Assessment Programme (SSGIEA). Specifically the group aims to provide: Annual status reporting, through the application of statistical analyses, of the principal activties, pressures and state indicators operating at the subregional level of the ecoregion. Probability based analysis of the inateractions between ‘key‘ components of the greater North Sea subregions using stochastic models, and; an assessment of the possible outcomes of management actions at the ecosystem level through its contribution to the greater North Sea ecosystem overview.
