This document contains the proceedings of the meeting on fisheries in the Saguenay River in the process of regional stock assessment of the Quebec region following the 2008 and 2009 fishing seasons. This review took place October 7, 2009 at the Maurice Lamontagne Institute, in Mont-Joli. Because of methodological problems raised by the Assembly during the presentation of results, the meeting was adjourned to review certain analyses. Unfortunately, because of the unavailability of the person in charge of analysis and short notice for consultation and produce the fishing plan, the meeting could not be completed in the time available. Examination of the data presented so far indicated that the stock situation does not seem to have evolved significantly since the last assessment. Therefore, fisheries management has decided, after consultation, to extend existing management measures for the next season and conduct the entire assessment over in the fall of 2010.
