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.
- Provide harvest advice for the 2011 fishery using a similar model formulation to that developed for the 2009 assessment of Georges Bank scallops.
