No in season increase in FLA3 TAC for 2012
Since the review of FLA3 TAC in 2007, the management of the FLA 3 stock has included an in-season review of the catch limits based on available information about stock abundance.
The following attachment is the detailed information about in-season stock abundance for the 2011-2012 fishing year that has been obtained by analysing historical fishery data and examining the relationship between commercial fishery catch rates over the first three months of a fishing year and end of fishing year landings. Applied to data from past fishing years, this procedure predicts end of season landings with 90% certainty.
