Assessment of Georges Bank scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) by Angelica Silva( Book )
16 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 146 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 Newfoundland and Labrador snow crab by E. G Dawe( Book )
13 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 141 libraries worldwide
This document presents research survey data and fishery data toward evaluating the status of the Newfoundland and Labrador snow crab resources. Stock status is assessed annually for inshore and offshore areas (where applicable) within each NAFO Division. Resource status is evaluated based on trends in fishery catch per unit of effort (CPUE), exploitable biomass indices, recruitment prospects, and mortality indices. Data are derived from multi-species bottom trawl surveys in Div. 2HJ3KLNOP, Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) inshore trap surveys in Div. 3KL, fishery data from logbooks, observer catch-effort data, industry-DFO collaborative trap survey data, as well as biological sampling data from multiple sources.--Document
Assessment of scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) in Scallop Fishing Area (SFA) 29 west of longitude 65°30'W by S. J Smith( Book )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 133 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
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 114 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
Stock assessment of subdivision 3Ps cod by Brian Healey( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 109 libraries worldwide
"In the Northwest Atlantic, cod are distributed from Greenland to Cape Hatteras and are managed as 12 stocks. The 3Ps stock off southern Newfoundland extends from Cape St. Mary's to just west of Burgeo Bank, and over St. Pierre Bank and most of Green Bank. The distribution of 3Ps cod does not conform well to management boundaries and the stock is considered a complex mixture of inshore and offshore sub-components. These may include fish that move seasonally between adjacent areas as well as fish that migrate seasonally between inshore and offshore. The extent to which the different components contribute to the fisheries is not fully understood. Cod from this stock generally grow faster than those from areas further northward. The present assessment is the result of a request for science advice from the Fisheries and Aquaculture Management (FAM) Branch (NL Region). The main objectives were to evaluate the status of the stock and to provide scientific advice concerning conservation outcomes related to various fishery management options."--Document
Stock assessment report on scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) in Scallop Production Areas 1 to 6 in the Bay of Fundy by Dale L Roddick( 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 5 December 2007 at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth to review the 2007 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 2008 fishery. This document presents the stock assessment for each of the production areas and for all of the Bay of Fundy.--Includes text from document
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 northern shrimp on the eastern Scotian Shelf (SFA 13-15) by David Hardie( Book )
12 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 91 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 scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) in Scallop Production Areas 1 to 6 in the Bay of Fundy by Stephen J Smith( Book )
11 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 77 libraries worldwide
Scallops in Scallop Production Areas 1 to 6 in the Bay of Fundy are assessed annually according to a framework conducted in 2002. As part of the Regional Science Advisory Process, a meeting was held 9 November 2009 at the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Dartmouth, N.S., to review the 2009 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 2010 fishery. This document presents the evaluation of stock for each zone and for the whole Bay of Fundy as well as an assessment of the model's forecasting ability.--Includes text from document

13 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 62 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
Status of Atlantic salmon in Salmon Fishing Areas (SFAs) 19-21 and 23 ( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 59 libraries worldwide
This Science Response report is a product of a meeting held by Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) Maritimes Science (February 17, 2011) 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 2011 advisory committee meetings. These are the formal consultative forums at which DFO solicits input from stakeholders prior to developing the 2011 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
Seventh meeting of the Canadian Eel Science Working Group, 14-16 October 2009, Moncton, New Brunswick by Groupe canadien de travail scientifique sur l'anguille( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"The Canadian Eel Science Working Group (CESWoG) met for the seventh time from October 14-16, 2009 at the Future Inns in Moncton, New Brunswick. The purpose of the meeting was to: 1. plan a strategy for addressing a formal request for advice from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) on the following questions: a. How do you assess cumulative impact of multiple dams in a watershed? b. What is best methodology for setting recruitment and escapement targets for a watershed, taking into account cumulative impacts? c. What is the current status of eels in Canada? d. What progress has been made toward meeting the goal of a 50% reduction in mortality, in both weight and numbers, relative to the baseline of average mortality in 1997-2002? 2. provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of new and emerging eel science in Canada. Since there was no formal request for advice by DFO, no advice is provided in this document."--Document
Assessment of lobster in Lobster Fishing Area 41 (4X + 5Zc) ( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 17 libraries worldwide
"The Maritimes Region's Lobster Conservation Strategy (2004-2008) requires that, within each LFA, indicators be developed that are supported by a broad representation of stakeholders. Indicators for lobster in LFA 41 are required to remain consistent with the overall Lobster Conservation Strategy. The purpose of this Science Advisory Report is to evaluate the status of lobster in LFA 41 (4X + 5Zc) in 2008 based on indicators for monitoring the health of the lobster stock in this area."--Document
Tendances dans les relevés d'été par navire scientifique dans la région des Maritimes ( Book )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in French and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Pêches et Océans Canada (MPO) effectue des relevés par navire scientifique (NS) selon un protocole normalisé dans la région des Maritimes. Des relevés sont faits l'hiver dans la division 5Z de l'Organisation des pêches de l'Atlantique Nord-Ouest (OPANO) depuis 1987. Les résultats obtenus les renseignent sur les tendances de l'abondance des espèces de poissons de fond dans la région des Maritimes. Si les résultats de ces relevés reflètent les tendances de la biomasse et de l'abondance et constituent un élément essentiel des évaluations scientifiques des stocks, une évaluation intégrale qui fait appel à d'autres sources de données est toutefois nécessaire pour évaluer les effets des mesures de gestion sur l'état des populations marines. La Gestion des pêches et de l'aquaculture (GPA) a demandé que l'on procède à un examen des données des relevés hivernaux du MPO dans les sous-divisions 5Z1-5Z4 portant sur les espèces suivantes : morue, aiglefin, goberge, hémitriptère atlantique, loquette d'Amérique, limande à queue jaune, loup atlantique, baudroie, raie à queue de velours, raie épineuse, grande raie, raie tachetée, raie hérisson et chaboisseau à dix-huit épines. La présente réponse des Sciences découle du processus spécial de réponse des Sciences du 24 octobre 2012 sur l'examen des tendances dans les relevés par navire scientifique dans la région des Maritimes.--Document

Following from this is an evaluation of recent trends in biomass (B) and fishing mortality (F) against maximum sustainable yield (MSY), biomass at MSY (BMSY), and fishing mortality at MSY (FMSY) derived in the framework assessment. This report includes background information on the Silver Hake, a description of the fishery, an analysis and response, and sources of uncertainty.--Includes text from document
Maritimes research vessel survey trends on the Scotian Shelf and Bay of Fundy ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
DFO has conducted summer research vessel (RV) surveys in the Maritimes Region, Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) subunits 4VWX and a small portion of 5Y, using a standardized protocol since 1970. Results of these surveys provide information on trends in abundance for most groundfish species in the Maritimes Region. While these data reflect trends in biomass and abundance and are a critical part of science-based stock assessments, a full assessment, including other sources of data, would be required to evaluate the impacts of management measures on population status. Fisheries and Aquaculture Management (FAM) requested a review of the DFO RV survey information on the following list of fish stocks: 4X cod, 4VsW cod, 4Vn cod, 4X haddock, 4VW haddock, 4X white hake, 4VW white hake, 4VWX silver hake, 4VWX+5 pollock, Unit II redfish, Unit III redfish, 4VW flatfishes, and 4X flatfishes, 3NOPs4VWX+5 Atlantic halibut, Atlantic wolffish, monkfish, 4X and 4VW smooth skate, thorny skate, barndoor skate, winter skate, little skate, 4VWX spiny dogfish, and longhorn sculpin. This Science Response Report results from the Science Special Response Process of October 24, 2012, on the Review of Maritimes Research Vessel Survey Trends.--Document
Assessment of the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence (NAFO Division 4T) American plaice (Hippoglossoides platessoides) Évaluation de la plie canadienne (Hippoglossoides platessoides) du sud du golfe du Saint-Laurent (division OPANO 4T) by Roderick Morin( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 1 library worldwide
American plaice was once an abundant resource and a valuable fishery in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence (NAFO Division 4T). The stock was last assessed in February 2008. A population model was used to estimate the spawning stock biomass, natural mortality and fishing mortality. The 4T plaice stock was viewed to be declining in biomass and subject to high natural mortality. Under conditions of low productivity, low abundance and poor recruitment, the prospects of improvement for this stock are poor in the short term.--Document
Potential impacts of fishing gears (excluding mobile bottom-contacting gears) on marine habitats and communities by J. C Rice( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 library 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
Évaluation des impacts potentiels de la pêche au chalut à la crevette nordique (Pandalus borealis) sur les habitats benthiques de l'estuaire et du nord du golfe du Saint-Laurent Assessment of the potential impacts of northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis) trawl fishing on benthic habitats in the Estuary and northern Gulf of St. Lawrence ( file )
3 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Ce document présente les informations qui peuvent être utilisées pour déterminer les endroits où une activité de pêche soutenue au chalut à la crevette nordique pourrait avoir un impact majeur sur les habitats benthiques en général et sur les écosystèmes marins vulnérables en particulier. La crevette nordique est retrouvée principalement dans les chenaux à des profondeurs variant de 200 à 300 m où les sédiments sont fins et consolidés et où les perturbations naturelles ont peu d'impact sur l'habitat et les organismes biologiques. La majorité des sites de pêche qui ont subi un chalutage régulier et intensif sont situés entre 200 et 300 m de profondeur, dans les chenaux Esquiman et Anticosti et le long des deux versants du chenal Laurentien, à partir de l'extrémité est de l'île d'Anticosti jusque dans l'estuaire.--Document
