“Advice on the stock status of American Lobster (lobster) in Lobster Fishing Area (LFA) 34 is requested annually by Fisheries and Aquaculture Management (FAM). The last Regional Advisory Process of this stock occurred in February 2013, with updates occurring in 2014, 2015, and 2016. The 2013 assessment identified three primary indicators that describe changes in lobster abundance and biomass, as well as proposed reference points for each indicator. This Science Response updates these indicators to the end of the 2015-2016 fishing season. This Science Response Report results from the Science Response Process of May 16, 2017, on the Stock Status Update of American Lobster in Lobster Fishing Area (LFA) 34"--Context, p. [1].
