The occurrence of Pandalus montagui in the shrimp catches from Division 0B in 1995 required a review of the fishery for this species in the Hudson Strait - Ungava Bay area. Historically, the fishery occurred within shrimp fishing area (SFA)3, primarily west of Resolution Island. In 1995, large catches were taken in Division 0B (SFA 2), east of the island, where the TAC applied only to P. borealis. The data indicated that the resource fished in 1995 was the same as previously fished within the SFA 3 boundary and that a change would be required to the Management Plan in 1996 to insure control over the level of harvest. This can be accomplished by setting a TAC for P. montagui in SFA's 2, 3 and 4, west of 630 W. There was no basis to advise a change in the TAC of 1200 tons previously set for this species in SFA 3.
