The Institute of Sea Fisheries (SF) participates in the annual international programs to identify population parameters of the pelagic fish species herring, mackerel, horse mackerel, blue whiting and sprat in the North Sea and Northern Atlantic. These data are combined with catch records and landing statistics, catch and bycatch records and sampling information from the commercial fleet and provide input for the fish stock assessments of the international ICES working groups. The results of these calculations serve as a basis for political decisions in the framework of the European Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and in international agreements. The objective of this project is to provide real-time information on the development of commercially exploited fish populations to facilitate a sustainable management of the resources. Working groups: ICES HAWG, ICES WGMHSA/Mackerel, Horse Mackerel, ICES PGHERS, ICES WGMEGS, ACFM/Advice, ACFM/Advice ASC, SGMID/Data, WGNPBW/BlueWhiting, EU-NOR shared stocks, SGAMHBW/Metho.
