Assessment of northern shrimp, Pandalus borealis, and striped shrimp, Pandalus montagui, in the eastern and western assessment zones, February 2017: Fs70-6/2017-010E-PDF

"Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) Resource Management (RM) has requested Science advice on the status of the two species of shrimp, Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis) and Striped Shrimp (Pandalus montagui) in the waters adjacent to Nunavut. Both species in the Eastern and Western Assessment Zones (EAZ and WAZ) were last assessed in 2015 (DFO 2015) and updated in 2016 (DFO 2016). Assessments are carried out every two years with updates in the intervening years. The EAZ and WAZ were adopted in 2011 (DFO 2011) as the basis for setting Total Allowable Catch (TAC) for each species within the management areas adjacent to Nunavut. In the 2013/14 fishing season, a new management system was implemented with three new Shrimp Fishing Areas (SFAs), Nunavut, Nunavik and Davis Strait, established to reflect the three jurisdictions present within this area. These new SFAs were further subdivided into management units which fall entirely within either the EAZ or WAZ. This assessment follows the framework developed in 2007 for Northern Shrimp off Labrador and the northeastern coast of Newfoundland (DFO 2007a). A series of fishery-independent surveys and fishery data formed the basis of the current assessment"--Context, p. [1].
