"This document reports on Regional Advisory Process (RAP) meeting on the Hudson Bay/Foxe Basin Bowhead stock held in Iqaluit, Nunavut, 17-18 June 1999. Meeting participants discussed a draft Stock Status Report (SSR), supporting documents and presentations by participants. Comments on the draft SSR from external reviewer are also appended. The participants favoured the two-stock hypothesis for eastern Arctic bowhead. Northern Foxe Basin was identified as a calf aggregations area. The Inuit participants offered information suggesting that the stock is recovering. The meeting participants agreed, based on the Potentcial Biological Removal approach, that a harvest level of one bowhead every two years is safe. The proceedings of this meeting were used to revise the SSR of the stock. The external reviewer's comments on the proceedings are provided in an appendix"--Abstract, page 3.
