ObjectivesEvery three years the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), coordinates a series of mackerel and horse mackerel egg surveys covering the northeastern Atlantic from Gibraltar to the Faeroes between January and July. The aim of this survey programme is to assess the northeastern Atlantic mackerel and horse mackerel stock. The Marine Institute participates in this programme and during the February survey in 2016 will cover stations in the Celtic Sea and Bay of Biscay.
