A virtual event on 16th November looking at the latest ICES advice on the key commercial species in the Northeast Atlantic. Register to attend.

According to the latest communication from the European Commission, fishing pressure decreased and fish stocks grew between 2003 and 2019 in the Northeast Atlantic. Biomass in EU waters has generally increased since 2007, and in 2019 was on average around 35% higher than between 2003 and 2013.

This bite-size meeting will look at the latest advice from the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas (ICES) on the key commercial species for the UK supply chain. We'll also look ahead to the negotiations for 2022 and provide an update on a key initiative helping to support the pelagic sector.
