SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Sebastes fasciatus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Acadian redfish, Ocean perch, redfish

There is some uncertainty associated with the stock structure of redfish in this area. Redfish are assessed and managed in the US as one unit (Gulf of Maine-Georges Bank) while those in Canadian waters are assessed and managed separately by Canada (NEFSC, 2008). While some mixing is thought to occur between the two groups, genetic differences have also been detected (Valentin et al, 2005).


ANALYSIS

Strengths
  • Stock appears to be well above management targets (NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) 2020).
