SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Doryteuthis (amerigo) gahi

SPECIES NAME(s)

Patagonian squid

Several authors found that a single stock of Patagonian squid exists around Falkland Islands and that there are no genetic differences between spawning cohorts, such as (Carvalho and Pitcher 1989)(Vega et al. 2001)(Scherbich et al. 2004).


ANALYSIS

Strengths
  • The adaptive assessment and management are appropriate for maintaining this short-lived species at a sustainable level, e.g. the scientific body has a pre-defined surveys program to assess the stock, and onboard observers to allowing real-time monitoring.
