SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Pandalus borealis

SPECIES NAME(s)

Northern prawn, northern shrimp

COMMON NAMES

Cold water prawn, Northern shrimp, Deep-sea prawn, Deepwater prawn, Pink shrimp

According with the latest research there are seven genetically distinct populations of P. borealis in the North Atlantic (Jorde et al. 2015). It is not clear if the Denmark Strait is a distinct population, and more research is necessary.

Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.

FishSource Scores

MANAGEMENT QUALITY

As calculated for 2013 data.

The score is 10.0.

This measures the Set TAC as a percentage of the Advised TAC.

The Set TAC is 12.4 ('000 t). The Advised TAC is 12.4 ('000 t) .

The underlying Set TAC/Advised TAC for this index is 100%.

As calculated for 2013 data.

The score is 10.0.

This measures the Catch as a percentage of the Set TAC.

The Catch is 1.70 ('000 t). The Set TAC is 12.4 ('000 t) .

The underlying Catch/Set TAC for this index is 13.7%.

STOCK HEALTH:

As calculated for 2010 data.

The score is ≥ 6.

Although biomass is not analytically determined, the stock is thought to be at a comparatively high biomass level in the past few years and recent catches have amounted to only around 30% of scientifically advised catch levels (NAFO/ICES, 2010).

As calculated for 2010 data.

The score is ≥ 6.

A standardized effort index used as a proxy for exploitation rate reveals a strong decline in effort since 1993 and present values at time-series lows (NAFO/ICES, 2010).
