The MP adjusts catch based on the value of the index in the current year relative to the time series mean and standard error.

The TAC is calculated as:
\textrm{TAC}_y=C_{y1} α
where C_{y1} is the catch from the previous year, and α is defined as:
where I is the index in the most recent year, d is 0.75 for ICI
and ICI2
,
u is 1.05 and 1.25 forICI
and ICI2
respectively, and \textrm{CI}_L
and \textrm{CI}_L are the lower and upper bound of the confidence
interval of mean historical index. The confidence interval is
calculated using Zscores described in the Functions section below.

ICI
: The catch is reduced by 0.75 if the Zscore of the current year's index is less than 0.44.
The catch is increased by 1.05 if the Zscore of the current year's index is greater than 1.96. Otherwise, the catch is held constant.
ICI2
: This method is less precautionary of the two ICI MPs by allowing for a
larger increase in TAC and a lower threshold of the index to decrease the TAC. The catch is reduced by 0.75
if the Zscore of the current year's index is less than 1.96. The catch is increased by 1.25
if the Zscore of the current year's index is greater than 1.96. Otherwise, the catch is held constant.
