Assessment of Atlantic halibut on the Scotian Shelf and southern Grand Banks (NAFO divisions 3NOPs4VWX5Zc) by Shelley L Armsworthy( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 83 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 (3NOPs4VWX5Zc) is based largely on tagging results that indicated Atlantic halibut move extensively throughout the Canadian North Atlantic. Information on Atlantic halibut has been gathered by Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) summer research vessel (RV) trawl surveys since 1970. The 2010 assessment used a new framework and produced estimates of spawning stock biomass and fishing mortality. The tagging estimates of fishing mortality were compared to those of the assessment model. The assessment was requested to determine halibut removals (including surveys and bycatch of Atlantic halibut), the recent catch rate in the RV and halibut survey, stock status, and fishing mortality, as well as to identify candidate reference points to evaluate the consequences of different harvest levels.--Document

Assessment of northern shrimp on the eastern Scotian Shelf (SFA 13-15) by David Hardie( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 56 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

Atlantic halibut all-sizes tagging program summary report for 2006 to 2011( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2006, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) and the Atlantic Halibut Council (AHC) began the Halibut All Sizes Tagging (HAST) program to estimate exploitation rate, describe the movement and distribution of halibut within the Scotian Shelf-southern Grand Banks management unit (NAFO Divs. 3NOPs4VWX5Zc), and estimate population size. Between 2006 and 2010, 2771 Atlantic Halibut caught during the DFO-Industry Halibut Survey were double tagged with t-bar anchor tags and released. Fishermen were compensated for the release of tagged halibut of commercial value (81 cm). Tag release information was recorded by fisheries observers and entered into DFO's Industry Surveys Database (ISDB). Fishermen were asked to return tags to DFO with information on the size, sex, date and location of recapture of tagged halibut. Each reported halibut was rewarded with $100 and an entry into a quarterly lottery for $1000. The tag recapture data is entered directly into the Halibut Tagging Database, an event-based Oracle database developed to house the release data extracted from the ISDB and the reports of recapture. Here the authors document the tagging program and database and identify areas for improvement.--Document
Errors in the NCEP/NCAR reanalysis-1 air temperature data in the Arctic between 1997 and 2004, and a post processing correction by S Nudds( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discrepancies are found between the air temperature data from the NCEP Reanalysis - 1 product and the observation based IABP product beginning in the late - 1990s in the Arctic region. Evidence points to an error in the incoming data stream for skin temperature used in the NCEP reanalysis. A comparison with long-term weather stations shows a warm bias, most prominent during the winter months. A correction was applied to the 2 m air temperature field to remove the bias. Significant improvements were made to the NCEP data, however, improvements varied spatially, and a monthly correlation analysis between observations and uncorrected and corrected data showed that, overall, the summer months (Jul-Aug) are better left uncorrected
