The Working Group on Fisheries-Induced Evolution (WGEVO) of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) has developed a general framework for investigating eco-evolutionary changes in fish stocks and their utilities in terms of ecosystem services and for assessing the management implications of fisheries-induced evolution through Evolutionary Impact Assessments (EvoIAs).
On this basis, WGEVO is currently compiling an extensive database describing the life-history parameters and fishing patterns of 60+ exploited fish stocks from around the world, which is expected to be released in 2018.
