“Stock status is assessed annually within each Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) Division. Resource status is evaluated based on trends in fishery catch per unit of effort (CPUE), exploitable biomass indices, recruitment prospects, and mortality indices. Data are derived from multi-species bottom trawl surveys in Divs. 2HJ3KLNOP, Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) inshore trap surveys in Divs. 3KLPs, fishery data from logbooks, observer catch-effort data, industry-DFO collaborative trap survey data, as well as biological sampling from multiple sources.
