Assessment of risk of shrimp fishing to conservation objectives of the narwhal overwintering and coldwater coral zone: Fs70-7/2017-018E-PDF

"The Narwhal Overwintering and Coldwater Coral Zone is currently closed to the Greenland Halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides) fishery, but the Northern Shrimp (Pandalus borealis) fishery operates within the closure area. The conservation objectives for the closure area, identified in the Subarea 0 Greenland Halibut Integrated Fishery Management Plan, is to minimize impacts on the winter food source and overwintering habitat for Narwhal (Monodon monoceros), and conserve coldwater coral concentrations. DFO Fisheries Management has requested advice from DFO Science on the levels of risk from shrimp fishing to narwhal overwintering habitat, narwhal food sources and coldwater coral within the existing Narwhal Overwintering and Coldwater Coral Zone. This Science Response resulted from the Science Response Process of March 2017 on the Assessment of risk from shrimp fishing to the conservation objectives of the Narwhal Overwintering and Coldwater Coral Zone"--Context, p. [1].
