Assessment of Georges Bank scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) by Angelica Silva( Book )
14 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 175 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 Nova Scotia (4VWX) snow crab by J. S Choi( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 144 libraries worldwide
This report is a scientific overview of the assessment and projections undertaken in support of the southwestern Nova Scotia (4x) snow crab fisheries. Commercial catch rates and other fishery statistics are reported and an assessment of the status of 4X snow crab is made from fishery independent surveys using indicators of abundance, reproductive potential, recruitment, and exploitation rates. Harvest advice for 2007 is also provided.--Document
Assessment of Northern Shrimp on the Eastern Scotian Shelf (SFAs 13-15) by David Hardie( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 143 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 )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 140 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
Assessment of scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) in scallop fishing area (SFA) 29 west of longitude 65°30'W by Stephen Smith( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 134 libraries worldwide
Scallop Fishing Area (SFA) 29 encompasses a very large inshore area inside the 12-mile territorial sea, from the south of Yarmouth (latitude 43°40ʹN) to Cape North in Cape Breton. This report refers to only that portion of SFA 29 west of longitude 65°30ʹW continuing north to SPA 3 at latitude 43°40ʹN. Advice on TACs for this area has been provided annually and is based on tracking the response of survey estimates of abundance to catches in the previous year
Status of Atlantic salmon in salmon fishing areas (SFAs) 19-21 and 23 ( Book )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
This Science Response report is a product of a meeting held by Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Maritimes Science (February 22, 2010) to review the information in a document containing updates on previous science advice on the status of salmon in Salmon Fishing Areas (SFAs) 19-21 and 23 using established methods. This advice is required in advance of the 2010 advisory committee meetings. These are the formal consultative forums at which DFO solicits input from stakeholders prior to developing the 2010 recreational salmon fishing plan. This advice is also used to inform Aboriginal groups of the status of the salmon resource in advance of developing harvest agreements. This report gives the responses of the meeting.--Document
Stock assessment report on scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) in Scallop Production Areas 1 to 6 in the Bay of Fundy by Stephen Smith( Book )
8 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 103 libraries worldwide
A meeting of the Regional Advisory Process was held 24-25 November 2005 at the Ramada Hotel, in Dartmouth, N.S., to review the 2005 scallop fishery and assess the status of the scallop stocks in Scallop Production Areas 1 to 6 in the Bay of Fundy as well as to provide the scientific advice for the 2006 fishery. This document presents the stock assessment for each of the production areas and for all of the Bay of Fundy
Assessment of cod in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence by G. A Chouinard( Book )
7 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 99 libraries worldwide
This report provides an assessment of the status of cod in the southern Gulf of Saint Lawrence. Assessments of this stock are generally required on an annual basis and the results form part of the information base used to establish the total allowable catch (TAC)
Assessment of the NAFO Division 4T southern Gulf of St. Lawrence herring stocks in 2011 Évaluation des stocks de hareng de la zone 4T de l'OPANO dans le sud du golfe du Saint-Laurent en 2011 ( file )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 85 libraries worldwide
Assessments of the spring and fall spawning herring components from the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence are prepared every two years and form a part of the information base used to establish the annual total allowable catch (TAC). The 2011 assessment of 4T herring spring spawner component was based on a sequential population analysis calibrated on both the age-disaggregated gillnet catch rate (CPUE) and acoustic survey indices. Atlantic herring in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence (sGSL) is found in the area extending from the north shore of the Gaspé Peninsula to the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, including the Magdalen Islands.--Document
Modèle de simulation de stratégies de récolte applicable à la crevette nordique A model for simulating harvest strategies applicable to northern shrimp by Mathieu Desgagnés( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
Potential impacts of fishing gears (excluding mobile bottom-contacting gears) on marine habitats and communities by Jake Rice( file )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 85 libraries worldwide
Canada is moving towards an ecosystem approach to the management of human activities in the sea. A Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS) science advisory process was held in March 2006 to examine the impacts of trawl gears and scallop dredges on benthic habitats, populations, and communities. In January 2010, an additional science advisory process to examine the impacts of fishing gears not reviewed at the previous meeting in 2006 (i.e. mobile bottom-contacting trawls and dredges), to assemble available information on their uses, and to provide scientifically-based conclusions and advice regarding their potential impact on marine habitats and biodiversity. This science advisory report is based on the global and Canadian experience with various fishing gears (excluding bottom trawls and dredges). It presents a generic framework for the evaluation of individual fisheries
