Abstract

This report describes the results of the industry survey; an annual survey targeting sole and plaice on-board of the commercial fishing vessels UK45 and OD1. The survey was set up following the wish of the fishing industry to deliver data for stock assessments themselves, which are collected using commercially representative fishing gears. This survey was expected to make stock assessment results more accurate and to increase trust of the fisheries industry in stock assessments.
