Abstract

The potential for the rebuilding of the North Sea herring spawning biomass to above precautionary limit biomass reference points (1.3 million tonnes) was explored by a short term forecast applying different recruitment trends and productivities and the current management agreement between the EU and Norway. This was carried out, so that the PFA could consider rebuilding the herring stock to above 1.3 million tonnes.
