Update of stock status indicators for northern shrimp in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence: Fs70-7/2017-008E-PDF

“The stock assessment of Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis) in the Estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence is conducted every two years, with the most recent assessment completed in January 2016. The precautionary approach adopted for this fishery demands an annual update of the stock status indicators. This indicator of stock status is calculated from the indices obtained from the summer commercial fishery and the Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) research survey. This update has been prepared to provide to the Fisheries Management the projected harvests for 2017 in the four shrimp fishing areas (SFA 8, 9, 10 and 12) according to the guidelines of the precautionary approach"--Context, p. [1].
