Stock Assessment Report on west coast Vancouver Island Pacific herring

Summary

  • All herring spawning within Statistical Areas 23 to 25 are assumed to belong to the west coast of Vancouver Island (WCVI) herring stock that migrates inshore in the late fall and leaves, after spawning, in mid-March through April.
  • No commercial fishery occurred in the west coast of Vancouver Island in 2007.
  • The forecast stock biomass for 2008 is 11,690 tonnes, which is below the fishing threshold (18,800 t), and will not support a commercial fishery in 2008.
