Trends in Scottish Fish Stocks 2020

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This paper summarises the most recently published data from the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) on the state of commercially important fish stocks in the waters around Scotland. These data reveal trends in the sizes of these fish stocks and in the levels of exploitation. This information informs the scientific advice that ICES provides on the future management of these fish stocks.
The general overall picture continues to be one of relatively high abundance, following increases over the last two decades, and of relatively low levels of exploitation following decreases over the same time period.
