A review of the status of the 4VWX flatfish stocks (exclusive of the halibuts) / by J. D. Neilson and P. Perley. : Fs70-8/85-42E-PDF

"Landings of flatfish (exclusive of the halibuts) in NAFO Divisions 4VWX remained at comparatively low levels in 1984 relative to the catches obtained in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Recent indications from research vessel cruises suggest a relatively stable population of witch and yellowtail with slight increases in American plaice. Abundance indices from commercial fishery data suggest more substantial recent increases, although questions regarding the reliability of those data exist. On the basis of "short-cut" TAC calculations and the continued ambiguity surrounding the status of these stocks, the existing TAC of 14,000 t may be too high"--Abstract.
