Assessment of Newfoundland and Labrador snow crab by E. G Dawe( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents research survey data and fishery data toward evaluating the status of the Newfoundland and Labrador snow crab resource throughout NAFO Div. 2J3KLNOP4R in 2006. Data from the Div. 2J3KLNOPs 1995-2006 multispecies bottom trawl surveys are presented to provide information on trends in biomass, recruitment, and mortality over the time series. The fall survey data have been used in annual snow crab assessments since 1997. Multispecies survey indices are compared with other relevant indices derived from fisher logbook data, observer data, and inshore and offshore Div. 3KLPs4R trap survey data, toward inferring changes in resource status for 2007 and beyond.--Document
Assessment of Georges Bank scallops (Placopecten magellanicus) by Angelica Silva( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sea scallop, Placopecten magellanicus, is found only in the Northwest Atlantic, from Cape Hatteras to Labrador. Major areas of offshore fishing activity are Georges Bank, the Eastern Scotian Shelf (Banquereau, Middle Bank, Sable and Western banks), 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.--Includes text from 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 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 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 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
Stock assessment of subdivision 3Ps cod by Brian Healey( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member 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

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 90 WorldCat member 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 2011 fishery.--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 WorldCat member 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
Seventh meeting of the Canadian Eel Science Working Group, 14-16 October 2009, Moncton, New Brunswick by Canadian Eel Science Working Group( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and French and held by 28 WorldCat member 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 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 WorldCat member 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
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( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and French and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
Indicateurs de l'état des stocks et points de référence conformes à une approche de précaution pour la crevette nordique du golfe du Saint-Laurent Stock status indicators and reference points consistent with a precautionary approach for northern shrimp in the Gulf of St. Lawrence by L Savard( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Ce document présente l'indicateur utilisé pour évaluer l'état de la ressource depuis la saison de pêche 2009. L'indicateur principal de l'état des stocks est basé sur l'abondance des mâles et des femelles estimée à partir de la pêche commerciale et du relevé de recherche. De nouveaux points de référence basés sur cet indicateur sont proposés pour délimiter les zones de classification de l'état des stocks. Ces points de référence seront utilisés pour développer une approche de précaution à la gestion des stocks de crevette du golfe.--Document
Potential impacts of fishing gears (excluding mobile bottom-contacting gears) on marine habitats and communities by J. C Rice( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member 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

Distribution de l'effort de pêche à la crevette nordique dans l'estuaire et le golfe du Saint-Laurent Distribution of northern shrimp fishing effort in the Estuary and Gulf of S. Lawrence by L Savard( )

4 editions published in 2012 in French and English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans le golfe du Saint-Laurent, le seul type de pêche à la crevette nordique autorisé est une pêche commerciale pratiquée à l'aide d'un chalut de fond dont la grandeur minimale des mailles est de 40mm. Ce rapport décrit les activités de chalutage à la crevette dans l'estuaire et le golfe du Saint-Laurent entre 1982 et 2011. L'examen des activités de pêche permettra de catégoriser les secteurs exploités en fonction de l'intensité du chalutage. Les résultats de cet examen pourront servir à évaluer le risque que les activités de pêche causent des dommages à l'habitat et aux communautés benthiques.--Document
