The 2013 saithe assessment was not accepted by ICES, but national advice was provided to Norwegian authorities by IMR. SSB has decreased in recent years, and fishing mortality has increased (Figure 4.3.53). The 2014 TAC was set at 119,000 tonnes based on national advice; this represents a 15% reduction from 2013 (ICES AFWG, 2014).
