The 1984-85, 4Vn herring biological update / by R. L. Stephenson and M. J. Power. : Fs70-8/85-72E-PDF

"As in previous years, the 4V herring fishery was restricted to the Sydney Bight area (4Vn) and had both an inshore and purse seine component. Landings by inshore gear (trap and gillnet) amounted to 483 t; the highest since 1962. Reported purse seine landings amounted to 3,925 t. Seven vessels began fishing in November and exceeded the 3,500 t quota within one month. Commercial catch rates were lower than in 1983, but still within the range of recent variation. The available biological information indicates that this fishery exploits a mixture of stocks. As a result no rigorous biological method can be used in assessment and it is preferable that there be no fishery on the overwintering herring in this area"--Abstract.
