Assessment of Northern Shrimp in SFAs 4-6
Regional Peer Review - Newfoundland & Labrador Region
February 15-17, 2022
Chairpersons: Dawn Maddock Parsons and Luiz Mello
The status of Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis) in Shrimp Fishing Areas (SFAs) 4-6 has been assessed annually since 2015. The status of Northern Shrimp in SFAs 4-6 was last assessed in February 2021 (DFO 2021).
Fisheries Resource Management has requested the current assessment as the basis for harvest advice for the 2022/2023 fishing season.
- Assess the status of the stock based on available indicators for Northern Shrimp in SFAs 4 to 6 (Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization [NAFO] Divisions 2G to 3K);
- Consider ecosystem status where the assessed stocks occur based on an overview including relevant summaries of oceanographic conditions, biological community structure and trends, and pertinent knowledge of ecological interactions (e.g. predator, prey) and stressors (e.g. anthropogenic impacts).
