SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Sebastes fasciatus

SPECIES NAME(s)

Acadian redfish, Ocean perch, redfish

Uncertainty remains around the stock structure of S.fasciatus, with genetic and morphometric analyses suggesting similarities between fish from NAFO Divisions 3LN and 3O, but migration events between Division 3O and other areas suggest that it is precautionary to manage North and SE Grand Banks (Divisions 3LN) as a separate unit until more information is available (Valentin et al, 2005).
