Belgium-Brussels: Herring in divisions 6.a, 7.b and 7.c: scientific assessment of the identity of the southern and northern stocks through genetic and morphometric analysis
Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
Herring in divisions 6.a, 7.b and 7.c: scientific assessment of the identity of the southern and northern stocks through genetic and morphometric analysis.
EASME wishes to enter into a service contract to assess the identity of herring stocks in ICES divisions 6.a, 7.b and 7.c, through genetic analysis, in order to develop genetic profiles of the northern (ICES division 6.a north) and southern (ICES divisions 6.a south, 7.b and 7.c) stocks, which can be used in the future to discriminate the 2 stocks even during times of mixing, such as in the summer acoustic surveys.
The general objective of this study is to contribute to the achievement of maximum sustainable yield (MSY) assessment and to the development of rebuilding or management plans for the herring stocks in ICES divisions 6.a, 7.b and 7.c. The herring in this area are considered to consist of 2 separate stocks, but, due to unknown amounts of mixing outside of their respective spawning periods, it has not been possible so far to specify separate catch advice.
The tasks are to be performed at the premises designated by the contractor, save where meetings are to be held at EASME's or the European Commission's premises.
