Browns Bank North Scallop Assessment

Maritimes Science Advisory Process

8 February 2011
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Chairperson: Tara McIntyre


The status of Browns Bank North scallop was last formerly assessed in 1998. Harvest advice is requested on an annual basis by Fisheries and Aquaculture Management Branch (FAM), but the lack of a population model has hindered the provision of quantitative advice. A new model was developed for this population in 2010.

The current assessment was requested by FAM to provide harvest advice for 2011.
