Assessment of Georges Bank scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) by Angelica Silva( Book )

17 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member 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 WorldCat member 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 )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member 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. The purpose of this document is to review the 2013 scallop fishery and assess the status of the scallop stock in Scallop Fishing Area (SFA) 29 West in support of the management of the 2014 fishery. Specifically, it provides science advice for the SFA 29 West scallop fishery by subarea based on the state-space habitat-based population model.--Includes text from document
Assessment of cod in the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence (NAFO Div. 4T) by Doug Swain( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 117 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

Seventh meeting of the Canadian Eel Science Working Group, 14-16 October 2009, Moncton, New Brunswick by Canadian Eel Science Working Group( Book )

"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

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 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Science Special Response Report is the product of the expert meeting for the Freshwater Large Aquatic Basin (LAB) that provided peer review of Risk Summary Sheets developed for each of the six departmental risks established in the national risk assessment reports. Participants carried out their review having first considered background documents that presented scientific information available on trends and projections and the impacts, vulnerabilities and opportunities for each LAB. The basin risk assessments first considered descriptions of climatic "Trends and Projections" (TP) on the near-term (10 year) and long-term (50 to 100 years) time scales. Then the assessments considered evaluations of "Impacts, Vulnerabilities and Opportunities" (IVO) for each temporal scale. The detailed TP and IVO reports, which are extensive and detailed assessments of the climatic changes and impacts at the sub basin level in each LAB will be published at the beginning of the 2013-2014 fiscal year.--Document
