Abstract: The quantities and value of herring landed during the 1975/76 herring season off the south coast are reviewed. The quantity landed showed a further serious decrease due to a decline in stock size which has occurred in recent years. This decline in stock size is due to a failure of recruitment and a continuation of a fishing rate that is too high. The present conservation measures are not adequate to protect this stock and it is considered necessary by the liaison committee to the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea that all herring fishing in the Celtic Sea should be stopped for a period if the stock is to be restored to its former strength.
