Assessment of the northern Gulf of St. Lawrence (3Pn, 4RS) cod stock in 2016: Fs70-6/2017-042E-PDF

“This resource is managed mainly by an annual total allowable catch (TAC). Several other management measures (number and types of gear, area closures during spawning and in winter (3Pn), observers, dockside monitoring, minimum size, bycatch monitoring, rules for the recreational fishing, etc.) are also enforced. Since 1999, the management year has started on May 15 of the current year and ended on May 14 of the following year. This stock is assessed every two years using mainly data from commercial fisheries, sentinel programs (fixed and mobile gear) and the DFO research survey. This Science Advisory Report is from the February 23, 2017 meeting on the assessment of northern Gulf of St. Lawrence cod stocks"--Context, p. [1].
