Westem Waters fisheries face major challenges in relation to the depleted state of the fishery resources and in implementing the adjustments required to bring exploitation of these resources on to a more sustainable basis. Fisheries assessments, as carried out by ICES working groups, use data from market sampling of the landed catch, reported landings and effort figures and also research vessel data to assess the state of fish stocks and to produce short term forecasts for setting Total Allowable Catches. Since the discards may constitute a significant source of extra mortality in some fisheries there is clearly a requirement to adequately describe the levels of discarded fish in order to improve stock assessment and the likelihood of sustainability. In deciding a strategy for improved sustainability there is also a requirement to understand the factors motivating the fishers to target and retain, or discard, fish of a given species and to relate this to the current management ...
