Stock Assessment Report on Queen Charlotte Islands Pacific Herring

Summary

  • All Pacific herring spawning from Cumshewa Inlet in the north to Louscoone Inlet in the south are assumed to be part of a single Queen Charlotte Islands stock that migrates inshore in the late fall and leaves, after spawning, in late March and early April.
  • No roe seine, gillnet, or spawn on kelp herring fishery occurred in this area in 2007.
  • The forecast mature stock biomass for 2007 is 6,891 tonnes, which is below the commercial fishing cutoff (10,700 t), and only food, social, or ceremonial harvest is anticipated for 2008.
