Stock Assessment of Sea Cucumber in NAFO Subdivision 3Ps

Regional Peer Review - Newfoundland and Labrador Region

March 13, 2023
Virtual Meeting

Co-Chairs: Dawn Maddock Parsons and Luiz Mello


The status of NAFO Subdivision 3Ps Sea Cucumber (Cucumaria frondosa) was last updated in 2018 (DFO 2018). The update concluded that there was no scientific basis for assessing the risk of any increase in harvest level and that sustainable exploitation rates are unknown. In September 2022, the southeast bed was surveyed. The current stock assessment is requested by Fisheries Resource Management to provide the Minister with advice to inform decisions regarding any changes to the current Management Plan.
