Reproduction and Stock Evaluation for Recovery


  • Development of more cost effective and precise methods to estimate reproductive potential
  • Assessment of reproductive potential over the latitudinal range of cod and Northern hake in relation to the environment
  • Application of simulation models to assess complex stock dynamics fisheries and management procedures
  • Determine the sensitivity of previous fishery independent spawning biomass assessment to inclusion of experimentally determined estimates of atretic follicle stage duration
  • Assess the cost benefit of a fisheries independent hake survey
