Assessment of Georges Bank scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) by Angelica Silva ( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The sea scallop, Placopecten magellanicus, is found only in the Northwest Atlantic. Major areas of offshore fishing activity are Georges Bank, the Eastern Scotian Shelf (Middle Grounds, Sable Island Bank, and Western Bank), Browns Bank, German Bank, and St. Pierre Bank (south of Newfoundland). Annual assessments of the status of the offshore scallop resource take into account the annual survey findings, meat size distribution in the catch and fishery performance. The management of the main scallop fishery in Georges Bank refers to zone "a" and is the focus of this document

Assessment of Northern Shrimp on the Eastern Scotian Shelf (SFAs 13-15) by David Hardie ( Book )
4 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The northern or pink shrimp, Pandalus borealis, is the only shrimp species of commercial importance in the Maritimes Region. Advice on the status of the eastern Scotian Shelf shrimp stock is requested by Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Fisheries and Aquaculture Management and industry to help determine a total allowable catch (TAC) that is consistent with the management plan. Annual assessments are required because of rapid changes in abundance, variable recruitment to the population and fishery, and changes in the size of shrimp available for harvest. The resource is near the southern limit of the species' distribution where it is thought to be more vulnerable to significant and rapid declines, as has been observed in the adjacent Gulf of Maine stock. The current report provides information and advice for management of the 2008 fishery
Assessment of Atlantic halibut on the Scotian Shelf and southern Grand Banks (NAFO divisions 3NOPs4VWX5Zc) by M. K Trzcinski ( Book )
3 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus) is the largest of the flatfishes and ranges widely in the waters off Canada's East Coast. The management unit definition (3NOPs4VWX5Zc) is based largely on tagging results that indicated Atlantic halibut move extensively throughout the Canadian North Atlantic with smaller fish moving further than larger fish. The last assessment of Atlantic halibut was conducted in early 2009 for 2008 (DFO 2009). A review of the assessment framework is expected to be completed in 2010. The current assessment was requested to determine halibut removals (including surveys and bycatch of Atlantic halibut), the recent catch rate, and distribution trends from the halibut survey.--Document

Proceedings of the Maritimes Region Science Advisory Process on the Assessment of Northern Shrimp on the Eastern Scotian Shelf, 4 December 2007, Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia Compte rendu de la réunion du Processus consultatif scientifique de la Région des Maritimes concernant l'évaluation de la crevette nordique de l'est du plateau néo-écossais, le 4 décembre 2007, Institut océanographique de Bedford Dartmouth (Nouvelle-Écosse) by Maritimes Region Science Advisory Process on the Assessment of Northern Shrimp on the Eastern Scotian Shelf ( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Maritimes Region Science Advisory Process was conducted on 4 December 2007 at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, to assess the status of northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis) on the Eastern Scotian Shelf. Participation in this meeting included Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO), the New Brunswick Department of Fisheries, Aboriginal communities, and industry. This assessment concluded that with biomass expected to remain relatively high, the Total Allowable Catch (TAC) of the last 2 years should be sustainable for 2008. However, it is expected that total and spawning stock biomass may decrease after 2008, with the rate of decline depending on the natural mortality and longevity of the 2001 year-class
