Assessment of the eel stock in Sweden, spring 2012
Today, we publish the following report:
Dekker, W. (2012). Assessment of the eel stock in Sweden, spring 2012; first post-evaluation of the Swedish Eel Management Plan. Aqua reports 2012:9. Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Drottningholm. 77 pp.
The report will not appear in print. For the electronic version, see
The related press-release can be found at http://www.slu.se/sv/om-slu/fristaende-sidor/aktuellt/alla-nyheter/2012/6/alforvaltning-pa-ratt-vag
The report has been compiled upon request by Havs och Vattenmyndigheten, to underpin the Swedish report to the European Commission in accordance with the Eel Regulation, later this month. In the past weeks, discussions on the status of the stock, the effect of the management plan, and this post-evaluation have been going around. We hope that this report will serve HaV, and will serve those discussions.
If the content of the report leaves any questions or the topic requires further discussion, I will be pleased to hear from you.
