Assessment of the Greenland Halibut stock in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (4RST) in 2017.: Fs70-6/2018-035E-PDF

"Stock status monitoring indicators for the Greenland Halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides) in the Gulf of St. Lawrence (NAFO Divisions 4RST) were updated in December 2017 (DFO 2018) and showed significant decreases in Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) research survey indicators and in commercial fishery landings. The analysis showed that trigger values warranting a stock assessment during an interim year had been reached. Consequently, DFO's Fisheries Management team requested that a full assessment of the Greenland Halibut stock be conducted in winter 2018. The next scheduled full assessment will be in winter 2019"--Context, page [1].
