Updated indicators status of the scallop stocks in Subarea 20A in Magdalen Islands

Regional Science Response Process – Quebec Region

February 15, 2022
Virtual Meeting

Chairperson: Charley Cyr


The scallop stock assessment is conducted every three years, with some exception, and the most recent assessment was completed in February 2020. In the case of subarea 20A of the Magdalen Islands, decision rules were established to determine on an annual basis the fishing effort. This effort is calculated from the catch per unit of effort from logbooks and abundance indices from the Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) survey.


Review the commercial fishery indices (landing and catch per unit of effort) and the DFO research survey indices (scallop density by different size classes).

Estimate the level of effort allowed according to the guidelines of the decision rules for the 2022 fishing season.
