Coastal Pelagic Species Stock Assessment Workshop

The Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) and the Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) will convene a workshop to develop methods for conducting stock assessments of short-lived coastal pelagic species (CPS) on the U.S. West Coast. The meeting is open to the public. The meeting will take place May 2 – May 5, 2016, beginning on May 2 at 10 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. The meeting will begin each subsequent day at 8 a.m., and will continue each day until 5 p.m. or until business for the day has been completed.

The primary purpose of the workshop is to develop methods for conducting stock assessments of short-lived CPS on the U.S. West Coast, with an emphasis on the central subpopulation of northern anchovy. The workshop will include a discussion of how stock assessments and/or single point biomass estimates can be used in management. The intent is to provide recommendations to the SWFSC for use in conducting CPS stock assessments, especially for data-limited stocks. A workshop report will be presented to the Council at the September 2016 meeting in Boise, Idaho.
