Proceedings of the Centre of Science Advice, Pacific Region. Assessment of Pacific sardine in British Columbia waters, with an emphasis on seasonal abundance and migration estimates; January 18, 2011

Chairperson: S. MacConnachie


A Regional Advisory Process (RAP) was held in January 2011 in Nanaimo BC to review the feasibility of developing a seasonal estimate of sardine biomass in the Canadian zone from the summer research trawl survey data independent of the U.S. stock assessment, and to provide advice on seasonal abundance and/or migration to apply to harvest control rules and set quotas for the 2011/2012 fishing season.

Participation in this meeting included staff from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Science, Fisheries and Aquaculture Management, and external participants from the Provincial Government, non-governmental organizations, academia, industry and professional consultants.

The results of this meeting are to be used to support management decisions related to the commercial sardine fishery.
