RECOMMENDATIONS

RETAILERS & SUPPLY CHAIN
  • Ask fishery managers to publish stock assessment summaries and fisheries statistics by stock and gear type for Pacific cod and Pacific halibut in the Russian Far East (RFE) in a timely manner.
  • Work with scientists to conduct further research into the population structure of Pacific cod in this and adjacent areas.
  • Ensure that the government publishes results of all scientific observations and monitoring of bycatch composition in all fisheries and the performance of paired streamer (tori) lines to reduce the incidental capture of seabirds in the longline fishery.

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.
