ACOM responds to requests for advice from ICES member countries, international commissions and organizations, and fisheries and ecosystem management bodies.
ACOM provides advice to our clients while ensuring quality, transparency, and legitimacy. The advice is based on the precautionary principle and the ecosystem approach, conforming to the management objectives of those authorities. When such objectives are absent or unclear, the advice follows ICES own frameworks. ACOM also provides the evidence to explore the consequences of trade-offs between objectives.
The committee works with stakeholders to ensure that the advice is understandable and relevant to society.
The leadership of ACOM consists of a Chair and three Vice-Chairs. The committee is composed of one representative from each of our member countries.
