Proceedings of the Maritimes Region Science Advisory Process on the Assessment of Spiny Dogfish (Squalus acanthias); 14-15 November 2007
Chairperson: Worcester, T.
A Maritimes Region Science Advisory Process (SAP) was held 14-15 November 2007, at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, to assess the status of the spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias) in Canadian waters. Participation in this meeting included Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), non-DFO scientists, Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Aboriginal communities, fisheries representatives, and non-governmental organizations. The results of this meeting are expected to inform decisions related to the management of the spiny dogfish fishery in Canada, and to assist in future discussions about the possibility of transboundary assessment with the United States of America.
