ResumenThe cod stock on Flemish Cap (NAFO Division 3M) is collapsed, and a fishing moratorium was in force since 1999. Cod catches were reduced since then to the by-catch taken by other fisheries in the area, but the stock did not recover. Current spawning stock biomass is at a very low level, well below the Blim, which was established in 14 000 tons for this stock, and recruitments since 1995 have been very poor. The lack of a directed fishery impedes to carry out a sequential population analysis, consequently the survey results are the only reference for the status of the stock. EU Survey results in 2004 indicate an insignificant 2003 year-class at age 1. The stock was dominated by the 2002 year-class at age 2, even it is also considered very poor, well below the level required to rebuild the stock. Growth of cod at the youngest ages in 2004 has been the highest ever observed.
