Abstract: This document forms a report of work in progress of STECF EWG 12-02 which met in Rostock, Germany to provide an evaluation of status of stocks and fisheries in the North Sea and Kattegat. For NS most stocks except NS cod are near to exploitation at Fmsy. Mixed fisheries considerations for NS therefore relate only to exploitation of cod. Work needs for NS include the influence of multi-species considerations and changes in M. Development of mixed fisheries advice in the short term is available for NS. Development of mixed fisheries advice for the NS in the medium term is not possible by June. For Kattegat fisheries are dominated by single species fisheries with minor bycatch. Although some Kattegat cod are caught the amounts are below the current TACs Work needs for the Kattegat are dominated by need to give catch advice for cod in the absence of an agreed assessment. There is an urgent need for development of integrated bioeconomic models.
