Stock assessment of winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus) of the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence (NAFO Div. 4T) to 2016: Fs70-6/2017-022E-PDF

"Winter Flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus) range from southern Labrador to Chesapeake Bay. In the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence (NAFO Div. 4T), Winter Flounder tend to be distributed in shallow, near shore areas where it is fished primarily for bait. A total allowable catch was first instituted in 1996 at 1,000 t. The most recent assessment dates to 2011. Following that assessment, the TAC was reduced to 300 t and has been in effect for the period 2012 to 2016. DFO Ecosystems and Fisheries Management has instituted a multi-year management approach for Winter Flounder and requested advice for a TAC decision for May 2017 to May 2022 for the southern Gulf of St. Lawrence Winter Flounder stock. This Science Advisory Report is from the March 1, 2017 science peer review meeting on the Stock status and fishery advice for May 2017 to May 2022 for Winter Flounder from NAFO Division 4T, southern Gulf of St. Lawrence. Participants at the meeting included DFO Science (Gulf, Newfoundland and Labrador regions), DFO Fisheries Management (Gulf, Quebec regions), the fishing industry, and a non-governmental organization"--Context, p.
