Norway lobster (Nephrops norvegicus) in Division 7.a, Functional Unit 15 (Irish Sea, West) [report]

ICES advises on the basis of the MSY approach that landings in 2014 should be no more than 8244 tonnes. If total discard rates do not change from the average of the last three years (2010–2012), this implies total catches of no more than 9914 tonnes. Note that this figure includes discards expected to survive the discarding process – assumed to be 10% of the total number discarded for this stock.
