Proceedings of the regional peer review meeting of the assessment of the status of the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio) stock : January 27 and 28, 2015, Moncton, NB / chairperson:...: Fs70-4/2016-007E-PDF

A regional advisory process meeting was held January 27 and 28, 2015 in Moncton (NB) to conduct a science peer review of the status of the snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio) biological unit of the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence (sGSL). The science review was conducted in response to a request from DFO Fisheries and Aquaculture Management (FAM) for advice on the status of stock in 2014 and catch advice for the 2015 fishery. The assessment on the status of the southern Gulf snow crab resource (Areas 12, 19, 12E and 12F) is based on fishery independent trawl surveys that provide indicators of abundance (commercial biomass), reproductive potential (abundance of mature females) and recruitment. Participants at the science review included science staff from the DFO Gulf Region, personnel from DFO FAM Gulf and Quebec regions, from universities, from aboriginal communities, from the fishing industry, from provincial governments, and invited external experts. A review of the stock status and the catch advice for the 2015 fishery is presented in a Science Advisory Report. Four research documents are expected in support of the advisory report.
