Pacific Ocean perch (Sebastes alutus) stock assessments for Queen Charlotte Sound, British Columbia in 2017: Fs70-6/2017-043E-PDF

“Pacific Ocean Perch (POP, Sebastes alutus) is a commercially important species of rockfish that inhabits the marine canyons along the coast of British Columbia. Of the current annual Total Allowable Catch (TAC) of rockfish on the west coast of Canada, POP has the second largest single-species quota after Yellowtail Rockfish (S. flavidus). Key results from the stock assessment for area 5ABC at the start of 2017 (the first assessment since 2010) are reported here. Harvest advice is required to determine if current harvest levels are sustainable and compliant with DFO’s Decision-making Framework Incorporating the Precautionary Approach. This Science Advisory Report is from the Regional Peer Review meeting on Stock Assessment for Pacific Ocean Perch (Sebastes alutus) in Queen Charlotte Sound, British Columbia in 2017, held on June 1-2, 2017"--Cf.
