STATISTICAL BULLETIN VOL 40 for the year 1990

27.85 MB

This issue of the Bulletin is set out with four parts : Part I contains summaries of catches of selected
finfish and invertebrate species by country and subarea for 1976-90; Part II contains the statistics of
nominal catches and fishing effort for 1990; Part Ill contains the seal catches and hunting effort for 1990;
and Part IV contains additional statistics to previous issues of the Bulletin . In tables where various groups
of species 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 Secretariat is pleased to acknowledge the efforts of countries through their statistical agencies
in maintaining records of their fisheries in the Northwest Atlantic and contributing the data for publication
in the Bulletin. In addition, the guidance of the Scientific Council and the Coordinating Working Party on
Atlantic Fishery Statistics has been invaluable.

The delayed publication of this issue was due to the very late receipt of some final statistics.

NAFO SC Studies No. 21 (1994)

Collection of Papers Related to Northern Cod and Seals in NAFO Divisions 2J and 3KL, Papers from June 1993

At its meeting during 2–16 June 1993, the Scientific Council noted that a complete scientific review of results from the Northern Cod Science Program of Canada was scheduled for late-1994, and the coordinator of the Program, J. S. Campbell, should be invited to consider a NAFO publication for a collection of papers. The Council noted a group of papers dealing with Northern Cod presented at its June 1993 meeting appeared suitable for a single publication. At its meeting during 7–10 September 1993, the Council expressed its appreciation to J. S. Campbell for accepting this task, and the Secretariat undertook to complete the publication by the end of 1994.

Symposium on Changes in Abundance and Biology of Cod Stocks and Their Possible Causes, 4–6 September 1991

During 4–6 September 1991, the Scientific Council held a Symposium on "Changes in Abundance and Biology of Cod Stocks and Their Possible Causes", with H. Hovgård (Denmark, in respect of the Faroe Islands and Greenland) as convener. At its meeting in September 1989, the Scientific Council initially agreed to host the 1991 Special Session on Atlantic Cod, and was pleased to welcome R. (Dick) Wells, the well-known Canadian expert on gadoid biology and fishery management science, to convene a Symposium. With the sad, untimely death of Dick Wells in December 1989, the Council was pleased Hovgård agreed to convene the session, and new ideas on the theme and specific topics were considered. The Council decided to dedicate the Symposium in memory of Dick Wells.

Interest in the contributions to the Symposium resulted in the Scientific Council recommendation that papers presented should be published in full or as extended abstracts in a special issue of, with H. Hovgård and T. Amaratunga undertaking the editorial review of the papers.

Introduction to Sequential Population Analysis - Special Session on Fish Stock Assessment Calibration Methods 9-11 September, 1992

During 9-11 September 1992, the Scientific Council held a Special Session on "State-of-the-Art in Fish Assessment: a Tutorial/Workshop on Calibration Methods and Their Practical Use" at the NAFO Headquarters, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, with R. K. Mohn (Canada) and R. Cook (EEC-United Kingdom) as co-conveners. For use during this tutorial/workshop R. K. Mohn prepared a workbook titled Introduction to Sequential Population Analysis and R. Cook prepared a working paper on ICES VPA Tuning Methods, while some additional working papers were circulated during the sessions. At its meeting of 14-18 September 1992, the Scientific Council agreed that the ICES VPA tuning methods be included in a revised workbook and that all materials contained in the other working papers be incorporated in a publication of a single volume of NAFO Scientific Council Studies. The tutorial material prepared by the authors now form the body of this Workbook, and the other working papers are appended.

Special Session on Management Under Uncertainties, 5-7 September 1990

During 5-7 September 1990, the Scientific Council held a Special Session on "Management Under Uncertainties Related to Biology and Assessments, with Case Studies on Some North Atlantic Fisheries" at the Lord Nelson Hotel, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, with J. Shepherd (EEC-UK) as convener. Keen interest in the contributions and associated discussions prompted the Scientific Council to consider publishing all contributions in a single volume of NAFO Scientific Council Studies. Of the 22 presentations made at the Session, 16 papers and 5 extended abstracts were accepted for publication in this issue of Studies after review by the convener and the editor. The contributions are printed in the order they were presented at the Session.

STATISTICAL BULLETIN VOL 38 for the year 1988

26.63 MB

This issue, Volume 38 for 1988 data, contains the most recent year of completed data available
to the Secretariat. The data were derived from STATLANT 21B8 reports by countries which are subject to
the Regulations of NAFO and by non-member states, which reported fishing operations in the Northwest
Atlantic during 1988. Data on quantities of fish and invertebrates are presented as ''nominal catches" (i.e.
live weight equivalent of the landings) in metric tons, and data for seaweeds are given as wet weight in
metric tons. Catches of seals are given as numbers of animals. The statistics are presented on a calendar
year basis and by month, where applicable. The tabular material in this issue was prepared directly from
computer compilations, utilizing the Secretariat's own IBM Compatible PC-NEC 386 with an NEC LC-890
Laser Silentwriter and printed at the Secretariat.

This issue of the Bulletin is set out with four parts: Part I contains summaries of catches of selected
finfish and invertebrate species by country and subarea for 1974-88; Part II contains the statistics of
nominal catches and fishing effort for 1988; Pan Ill contains the seal catches and hunting effort for 1988;
and Part IV , contains corrections to previous issues of the Bulletin. In tables where various groups of
species 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 the very late receipt of some final statistics.
