Brill (Scophthalmus rhombus) is assessed in the Working Group on the Assessment of Demersal Stocks in the North Sea and Skagerrak (WGNSSK) since 2013. Because only official landings and survey data were available, brill in subarea 27.4, divisions 27.3a, 27.7de was defined as a category 3 stock. For this stock biennial advice is provided based on the lpue trends of the Dutch beam trawl fleet (vessels > 221 kW). From 2015 onwards, also discards by metier were requested from all countries contributing to this stock through InterCatch. For the WGNSSK data call in 2017 also all available age and length data were requested through InterCatch for three years back in time (2014-2016).
