Working Group on the Ecosystem Effects of Fishing Activities (WGECO)
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the resulting travel restrictions, WGECO was conducted entirely by remote meetings in 2020. This strongly limited the amount of work which could be done, and reduced attendance as well. As a result, in consultation with ACOM leadership, it was agreed that only Tors D and E would be taken up this year. WGECO decided to keep all other ToRs for 2021 and not add any new ones.
