review of fishery monitoring1
Review of Fishery Monitoring
  • Implement validation of trip tickets
  • Stratified random sampling of TIP
    • SEFSC advise and train local agencies
  • Monitoring ACLs-What if exceeded
    • If data show can re-open- How is this done?
    • How quickly can it be done?
    • Framework approach? What mechanism?
    • What are response options?
research needs sub committee
Research Needs Sub-Committee
  • Recommended two members for committee
  • Prioritize research goals & objectives
  • Use SEDARs and other sources
  • 5-year plan
queen conch
Queen Conch
  • Deepwater conch assessment
    • 30-50 m; high density; 10,000 at ALS
    • Adults only, reproduction observed
  • Research recommendations (spawning stock)
    • Extent of resource
    • Extent of reproduction
    • Larval transport at shelf-edge
    • Relative population size
    • Population stability
queen conch1
Queen Conch
  • Petition to list under Endangered Species Act
    • Decision to list is not “fisheries management”
    • But has strong management implications
    • Should base on scientific information that is objective, transparent, inclusive, quality assured
    • Request description of process used by NMFS
    • Have role for SSC in process

  • Length-based methods, data limitations
  • No evidence of overfishing
  • SSC endorses SEDAR 26 results and consensus of Center for Independent Experts
options for parrotfish accountability measures
Options for Parrotfish Accountability Measures
  • 3 reasons for exceeding ACL
    • Excess fishing
    • Change in data collection
    • ACL set too low relative to stock size
  • Need scientific process to assess cause
  • Options for accountability measures
    • Trip limits
    • Size restrictions
    • In-season management
parrotfish status determination
Parrotfish Status Determination
  • Grazing species and endangered coral health
    • Need objective, transparent, inclusive review
  • Recommendations for SEDARs
    • Age and growth data critical
      • Queen triggerfish & blue tang
  • Future SEDARs
    • White grunt; stoplight parrotfish; STX parrotfish; doctorfish; yellowtail snapper
