WKASMSF - Report of the Workshop for Advancing Sexual Maturity Staging in Fish (WKASMSF)
The WKASMSF met 30 April – 4 May 2018 in Copenhagen, Denmark. 13 participants from eight countries (both ICES and GFCM countries) participated in the meeting. The meeting aimed to 1) prepare a historic overview of maturity scales used to collect and report maturity data to ICES, RDB and GFCM databases, 2) prepare conversion tables from the national and maturity staging workshop maturity scales to the internationally agreed maturity scale, 3) prepare an implementation plan for consistently reporting of maturity data in one international maturity staging scale, and 4) to review histological descriptions of maturity stages.
