The selection and role of limit reference points for Pacific herring (Clupea pallasii) in British Columbia, Canada: Fs70-6/2017-030E-PDF

"British Columbia's Pacific Herring (Clupea pallasii) fisheries are managed using a harvest strategy initially designed and adopted in 1986. Despite the early adoption of a harvest control rule that anticipated requirements under the DFO Harvest Decision-making Framework Incorporating the Precautionary Approach (DFO 2009, hereafter called the DFO PA Framework), limit reference points have not been specified for Pacific Herring stocks in British Columbia (BC). This Canadian Science Advisory Secretariat (CSAS), Regional Peer Review (RPR) was undertaken to review the role and selection of limit reference points for the major stocks of BC Pacific Herring. This work is a component of the commitment for renewal of the management framework for BC Pacific Herring in accordance with Canada’s Sustainable Fisheries Framework, and to address requirements of the DFO PA Framework policy. This Science Advisory Report is from the February 7–8, 2017 regional peer review on The Selection and Role of Limit Reference Points for Pacific Herring in British Columbia, Canada"--Context, p. [1].
