Assessment of northern shrimp on the eastern Scotian Shelf (SFAs 13-15): Fs70-6/2017-005E-PDF

"Advice on the status of the Eastern Scotian Shelf Shrimp stock is requested by DFO Resource Management 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 2017 fishery"--Context, p. [1].
