Provenance information In the 2016 Stock Book, every effort has been made to use the most up to date version of the ICES and STECF advice. However, the final official ICES ACOM and STECF Reports should be consulted for the definitive advice. For more detailed information on specific stocks the relevant ICES Working Group Reports should be consulted. The official EU journal should be consulted for definitive TAC’s and Quotas for 2015.
