The work of the NSAC is delivered by 3 Working Groups Demersal, Skagerrak & Kattegat and Ecosystem. These groups each meet 2 to 4 times a year to consider and discuss a number of current and emerging topics and to develop advice and policy on behalf of the NSAC membership. Once finalised, advice developed by the Working Groups is presented to the Executive Committee for approval. A Working Group may be supported by a number of Focus Groups.
Chairmen of the Working Groups are;
Demersal Working Group – Barrie Deas
Skagerrak & Kattegat – Claus Hjorne Pedersen
Ecosystem Working Group - Euan Dunn
