Proceedings of the Assessment Framework for Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis) off Labrador and the northeastern coast of Newfoundland; May 28-30, 2007

Chairperson: Dr. Noel Cadigan
Editor: Dr. Jerry Ennis

Summary

A meeting of the Newfoundland and Labrador Regional Advisory Process on Shellfish was held May 28-30, 2007 in St. John’s. Its purpose was to review the assessment framework for Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis) off Labrador and the northeastern coast of Newfoundland.

The meeting produced a substantially revised performance report spreadsheet to be used in the next shrimp assessment. The meeting could not define values for limit or precautionary reference points but it did outline a way to proceed towards defining these values.

This Proceedings Report provides summaries of presentations and the broad scope of discussion that took place. It also includes the decisions and conclusions reached by consensus and research recommendations made. No Science Advisory Report will be produced. However, all of the research material developed specifically for presentation at the meeting will be included in a Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) Research Document.
