2016 Maritimes research vessel survey trends on the Scotian Shelf and Bay of Fundy: Fs70-7/2017-004E-PDF

“Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) has conducted Summer Research Vessel (RV) surveys in the Maritimes Region, Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) divisions 4VWX5Yb, using a standardized protocol since 1970. Results of these surveys provide information on trends in abundance for most groundfish species in the Maritimes Region. While these data reflect trends in biomass and abundance and are a critical part of science-based stock assessments, a full assessment, including other sources of data, would be required to evaluate the impacts of management measures on population status. This Science Response Report results from the Science Response Process of December 1, 2016, on the Stock Abundance Trends from the Maritimes Research Vessel Survey of the Scotian Shelf and Bay of Fundy"--Context, p. [1].
