The primary purpose of the survey was to measure pandalid shrimp biomass within the Region. Results were compared with established pandalid shrimp threshold biomass levels to determine appropriate fishery management. Secondary objectives included obtaining species composition data and length frequencies from commercially important groundfish and shrimp and generating density estimates for forage fish.
