Abstract: DG MARE requested that STECF evaluate the proposed management plan of herring in VIaS and VIIbc as part of the plenary meeting 13-01. The rst Term of Reference was to assess the plan for compatibility with the Precautionary Approach and its ability to manage the stock to MSY by 2015. This was investigated using stochastic medium term forecasts, the methods and results of which are presented here. As noted in the STECF 2012 autumn plenary meeting, some points of the revised plan require clarication with the Pelagic RAC. The simulations were performed under several assumptions and with dierent scenarios: whether there continue to be overcatches (i.e. the total catch is greater than the TAC) and whether the TAC is allowed to be set to zero if the SSB falls below 76 kt.
