The 1987 Roe Herring Charter Vessel Monitoring and Sampling ProgramMicroform - 1987
Twelve charter vessels made 397 sample sets on the British Columbia coast in order for fishery managers to assess the stock abundance, recruitment, and state of sexual maturity of the Pacific herring. These data were used to determine the location, timing and estimated duration of the 1987 commercial roe herring fishery openings. In addition, laboratory samples were retained after each sample set for use as part of a data base for the computer modelling system used to predict the available surplus for the 1987/1988 Pacific herring fishery. Field data, including hydroacoustic stock estimates and onboard field analysis data are presented.
