Proceedings of the Pacific Scientific Advice Review Committee (PSARC) meeting for the assessment of scientific information for a recovery potential assessment for bocaccio rockfish and basking shark and for the identification of critical habitat for stickleback pairs in British Columbia; October 22-24, 2008
Chairperson: Al Cass
Participants from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Science, Habitat Management and Fisheries and Aquatic Management sectors, the fishing industry, academia, the ENGO community, the Province of British Columbia and the general public including invited biological consultants attended a PSARC review on October 22-24 2008 to assess and develop advice for the following working papers:
- Stock assessment for bocaccio (Sebastes paucispinis) in British Columbia waters.
- Assessment of information used to develop a Recovery Potential Assessment for basking shark Cetorhinus maximus (Pacific population) in Canada.
- Identification of critical habitat for sympatric stickleback species pairs and the Misty Lake parapatric stickleback species pair (Gasterosteus spp.).
Comments received on the three working papers are presented in these Proceedings. All three research documents were accepted subject to a number of revisions. Taking these comments into account, CSAS Research Documents and CSAS Science Advisory Reports will follow for all three subjects.
