Assessment of Georges Bank scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) by Angelica Silva( Book )
17 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 154 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 )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 146 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 Stephen Smith( Book )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 141 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 Scallop Fishing Area (SPA) 3 at latitude 43°40ʹN, hereafter referred to as SFA 29 West. Advice on Total Allowable Catch (TAC) for this area is based on survey estimates of abundance and commercial catch rates. There are no reference points for the fishery in SFA 29 West at this time.--Document
Assessment of Atlantic halibut on the Scotian Shelf and southern Grand Banks (NAFO divisions 3NOPs4VWX5Zc) by Shelley L Armsworthy( Book )
10 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 117 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

Northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis) off Baffin Island, Labrador and northeastern Newfoundland - second interim review by David Cameron Orr( Book )
23 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
This document provides interim updates of northern shrimp assessments performed from southern Davis Strait to the north-east Newfoundland Shelf in Shrimp Fishing Areas 2, 4, 5, & 6. The status of the shrimp resource in each area was inferred, in part, by examining trends in commercial catch, effort, catch per unit effort, fishing pattern, and size/sex/age composition of the catches. A multi-species research trawl survey conducted in 2000 provided information on distribution, abundance, biomass, & size/sex composition of shrimp catches in Hawke Channel and off north-west Newfoundland. The findings are compared with results of previous surveys in these areas

Risk-based assessment of climate change impacts and risks on the biological systems and infrastructure within Fisheries and Oceans Canada's mandate Pacific large aquatic basin by Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
In keeping with the Federal Adaptation Policy Framework, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) received funding for the Aquatic Climate Change Adaptation Services Program (ACCASP; 2011-2016) in order to implement a science-based climate change program focused on adaptation and delivery of Fisheries and Oceans' mandated areas of responsibility. The Program will undertake risk assessments, foster the development of applied science-based tools and research projects to increase our understanding of the impacts of climate change, and enable adaptation in support of DFO's strategic outcomes. One of the primary objectives of the Program is to assess the risks that climate change poses to the delivery of DFO's mandate within four defined Large Aquatic Basins (LABs), namely the Arctic, Pacific, Freshwater and Atlantic. The assessment of regional risks will help front-line managers respond to climate change. This Science Response Report (SRR) details the results from the National SSRP meeting on the Risk-based assessment of climate change impacts and risks on biological systems and infrastructure within Fisheries and Oceans Canada's mandate--Pacific Large Aquatic Basin, Nanaimo, British Columbia.--Document

Abondance et total autorisé des captures débarquées pour la population de narvals du nord de la baie d'Hudson ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in French and held by 2 libraries worldwide
En août 2008, le ministère des Pêches et des Océans (MPO) a mené un relevé de l'aire de regroupement d'été de la population de narvals du nord de la baie d'Hudson. Il semble y avoir eu des défaillances dans le relevé de 2008. Compte tenu de l'incertitude dans les résultats du relevé et donc de l'estimation des prises durables, un nouveau relevé a été recommandé. Le MPO a mené des relevés aériens supplémentaires de l'aire de regroupement d'été du nord de la baie d'Hudson en août 2011. Cet avis scientifique présente une nouvelle estimation de l'abondance de la population et des recommandations quant au total autorisé des captures débarquées et la durabilité de la chasse afin de fournir des renseignements utiles pour la gestion de cette population.--Document
