The survey indicates that the SSB is close to the lowest observed level. Recruitment has declined over the period 1984-2002 and has remained low since.

Management advice

The 2009 data do not change the perception of the stock and give no reason to change the advice from that given last year: Given the low spawning stock biomass (SSB) and recruitment for this stock, no catch should be taken from this stock in 2011 and a  recovery plan should be developed and implemented. The survey indicates that the SSB is close to the lowest observed level. Recruitment has declined over the period 1984-2002 and has remained low since. Recruitment is clearly impaired at present SSB.

Comments by IMR 

IMR supports the ICES advice. The recovery plan can be an important step towards a safer coastal cod management.
