Analysis of the status of the Newfoundland west coast herring stocks / by J.A. Moores.: Fs70-8/79-5E-PDF

"Both the inshore and mobile components of the herring fishery in the Newfoundland west coast stock area experienced an increase in catch in 1978 despite a declining trend in stock abundance (Moores and Winters 1978). Total catch in 1978 was 15,922 metric tons, an increase of 30% above the 1977 catch of 12,286 m tons (Table 1). The large increase in catch is primarily attributable to the inshore components (gillnet, bar seine, trap) which landed 5596 m tons in 1978, double the 1977 catch (2822 m tons)"--Introduction, page 1.
