Tip of the Month: Find ICES popular advice

Every month, ICES Website wizard provides users with a useful tip on how to improve their website experience.
Published: 30 March 2015

​​​​​This month, we look at ICES Popular advice map​ and how to search for popular advice ​in our library.​

What is ICES Popular advice?

ICES Popular advice is an easy-to-read digest of the official ICES advice.

The popular version aims to reach a broader audience by describing the different fisheries in the Northeast Atlantic and the fish stocks that support them.

ICES Popular advice map

ICES interactive map displays popular advice for each fish stock within the various ICES ecoregions, and enables users to gain access to more in-depth information on each stock.​

Using the interactive map, users can search items:

By ecoregion
Using the top menu, select a specific ecoregion or all ecoregions.
Clicking directly onto a chosen ecoregion on the map, the user will zoom into the chosen ecoregion. A pop up box with a description of the ecoregion will also appear. All stocks in that ecoregion are represented by pins on the map which the user can then click on to find further information.  

By stock
Users can enter the stock name directly into the search box on the top left hand corner of the map or scroll through the list of stocks in the left hand panel to find the stock required.

Stocks are represented on the map by red pins. Clicking on these pins will bring up information about the stock and a link to an individual popular advice sheet.

Regular users should bookmark the page​ for quick future access.
