Proceedings of the regional peer review on the assessment of the status of the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio) stock: Fs70-4/2017-014E-PDF

January 25 and 26, 2017, Moncton, NB /

"A regional advisory process meeting was held January 25 and 26, 2017 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 2016 and catch advice for the 2017 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 region, from universities, from aboriginal communities, from the fishing industry, and from provincial governments. A review of the stock status and the catch advice for the 2017 and 2018 fisheries were presented as part of the Science Advisory Report. The four working papers were recommended to be revised and published as research documents. The Science Advisory Report received consensus at the meeting”--Summary, p. iv.
