Status of 4Vn herring fishery - 1978-79 / M. Sinclair, W. Stobo and A. Sinclair.: Fs70-8/79-40E-PDF

"From November to January there is a purse seine fishery, predominantly in the Sydney Bight area (Figure 1a), on overwintering herring. The small catches of herring in 4Vn by fixed gear in other seasons are assumed to belong to unrelated local stocks. However, the identity of the stock or stocks overwintering in this area (or passing through), and the possible contribution of local stocks to the winter catch, is not established. Inability to associate the 4Vn winter catch to catches of the same stock(s) during other seasons causes difficulty in doing an analytical assessment. Thus to date, quotas have been based on historical catch and catch rate trends"--Introduction.
