Profile updated on 24 October 2017
The stock structure of Shortraker rockfish is unknown within the British Columbia coast thus an assessment unit is considered (DFO 1999; DFO 2017).
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.
