STATISTICAL BULLETIN VOL 44 for the year 1994

14.96 MB

This is Volume 45 of NAFO Statistical Bulletin, which contains 1995 data available to the Secretariat. The data are
from STATLANT 2IB reports by countries, which reported fishing operations in the NAFO Convention Area of the
Northwest Atlantic during 1995 . In accordance with the decision of the Scientific Council in June 2001, this issue is
published in the absence of complete data submission from the USA: Tables 1, 2 and 3 have total catch by species only
for USA without any breakdown.

This volume contains data on quantities of fish and invertebrates presented as "nominal catches" (defined as live
weight equivalent of the landings) in metric tons. Data for seaweeds are given as wet weight in metric tons , and catches
of seals are given as numbers of animals. The statistics are presented on a calendar year basis and by month, where
applicable.

This issue of the NAFO Statistical Bulletin is set out with four parts: Part I contains summaries of catches of
selected species items by Country and Subarea for 1981-95; Part II contains the statistics of nominal catches and fishing
effort for 1995; Part ill contains the seal catches and hunting effort for 1995; and Part IV contains revisions to
statistical data for 1989 to 1994. In tables where various groups of species items are used, they are in accordance with
those listed in the "Definitions and Abbreviations". Further details of the tabular presentation of data are given in the
text at the beginning of each Part.

The delayed publication of this issue was due to delays in submission of some final statistics . It is noted the
Scientific Council at its meeting in June 2001 agreed to proceed with this publication although the absence of complete
data from USA makes some tabulations incomplete.

This issue of the Bulletin is set out with four parts: Part 1 contains summaries of catches of selected specie.s
items by Country and Subarea for l 979-93; Part II contains the statistics of nominal catches and fishing effort for
1993; Part Ill contains the seal catches and hunting effort for 1993, and Part IV contains modifications to

with those listed in the "Definitions and Abbreviations". Further details of the tabular presentation of data are given
in the text at the beginning of each Part.

The Secretariat is pleased to acknowledge the efforts and assistance of the officers of statistical agencies of
countries contributing data for publication of this Bulletin, and the national representatives who assisted in obtaining
the data for this publication. Tn addition, the guidance of the Scientific Council and the Cooperation of Coordinating
Working Party on Fishery Statistics (CWP) have been invaluable.

Selected Studies Related to Assessment of Cod in NAFO Divisions 2J+3KL

At its meeting during 5–19 June 1996, the Standing Committee on Publications (STACPUB) noted that the extensive scientific review of the Cod Stock in NAFO Div. 2J and 3KL conducted by the Scientific Council consisted of a group of papers suitable for a single publication of NAFO Scientific Council Studies. At its meeting during 7–13 September 1996, STACPUB invited J. Morgan, Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Centre, Newfoundland, Canada, to undertake the coordination of the papers for this publication.

Assessment of Groundfish Stocks Based on Bottom Trawl Survey Results

In recent years the Scientific Council has recorded an increasing importance on abundance data derived from research surveys, for the fish stock assessments. While there are serious problems with the quality of the catch statistics necessary for assessments, several important stocks assessed by the Scientific Council are under moratoria and are therefore not producing fishery data. In these cases, abundance survey data are the only available reliable source of information on stock status. Observing the urgent need to consider fishery independent methods of stock assessments, the Scientific Council called for a Workshop to review the methods, at its Special Session to be held in conjunction with the 18th Annual Meeting of NAFO.

The Workshop titled 'Assessment of Groundfish Stocks Based on Bottom Trawl Survey Results' with H. Lassen as convener was held during 4–6 September 1996, at Shuvalov Palace, St. Petersburg, Russia. The Workshop was open to the general scientific community, although participation was primarily aimed at the NAFO Scientific Council members.

Considering the hands-on nature of the Workshop, the total number of participants was limited. A total of 39 participants attended from Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greenland, Faroe Islands, Japan, Norway, Portugal, Russia, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Selected papers on Harp and Hooded Seals

Noting that Denmark (in respect of Greenland) with the concurrence of Canada  had requested advice on harp and hooded seals, the Scientific Council called a meeting of the Joint ICES/NAFO Working Group on Harp and Hooded seals. This Group met at the Keddy's Dartmouth Inn, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, during 5–9 June 1995, in conjunction with the Scientific Council meetings of 7–21 June 1995. The Group considered the assessment of the stocks and catch options, as reported in Scientific Council Reports, 1995, pages 43–48.

Noting that most of the research documents presented at the Working Group meeting were quite extensive and together presented an excellent summary of current knowledge of the status of the harp and hooded seals, the Council agreed that it would be extremely useful to compile these documents into a single issue of the NAFO Scientific Council Studies. Upon the approval of members of the Working Group, authors were requested to submit their revised papers for a special issue of the Council Studies.

Flemish Cap Selected Environmental and Other Papers

This issue of NAFO Scientific Council Studies was initiated by the Standing Committee on Publications (STACPUB) of the Scientific Council with the intent of publishing the detailed review on Flemish Cap oceanography as prepared by the Chairman (M. Stein) of the Standing Committee on Fisheries Environment (STACFEN). At its meetings, STACPUB agreed to publish this review in addition to the annual review papers on climatic conditions as well as other currently available reports related to the Flemish Cap from research documents presented to its meetings, under a single cover of the NAFO Scientific Council Studies. The 24 previous issues of NAFO Scientific Council Studies are listed on the inside back cover of this volume.

Impact of Anomalous Oceanographic Conditions at the Beginning of the 1990s in the Northwest Atlantic on the Distribution and Behaviour of Marine Life, Symposium, 15–16 September 1994

During 15–16 September 1994, the Scientific Council held a Symposium on 'Impact of Anomalous Oceanographic Conditions at the Beginning of the 1990s in the Northwest Atlantic on the Distribution and Behaviour of Marine Life', with M. Sinclair (Canada) and M. Stein (Republic of Germany) as co-conveners. Through ICNAF and NAFO times, the scientific community had expressed the interests and values of conducting decadal reviews of the environmental conditions in the northwest Atlantic. Two such publications were completed for the decades of the 1960s (ICNAF Special Publication, No. 8 – Symposium on Environmental Conditions in the Northwest Atlantic, 1960–69, Jul 1972, 254 p.), and the 1970s (NAFO Scientific Council Studies, No. 5 – Symposium papers on Environmental Conditions in the Northwest Atlantic, 1970–79 Dec 1982, 114 p.). The September 1994 Symposium addressed the environmental issues in recent years, particularly relating them to marine life.
