1 Size frequency data used in the historical assessments for the Shetland area were provided by the NAFC Marine Centre with the permission of the Shetland Shellfish Management Organisation. Recent data for Shetland have been collected and provided by staff from NAFC Marine Centre under the Memorandum of Understanding between NAFC Marine Centre and MSS.

2 This approach has been used by ICES for other crustaceans such as Nephrops. FMSY proxy values were calculated from a per-recruit analysis from a LCA of 2006-2008 landings-at-length data. Where 2006-2008 sampling data was unavailable, data from 2009-2012 was used instead. All FMSY proxy values remain preliminary and may be modified following further data exploration and analysis.
