Lingcod Stock Assessment and Recommended Yield Options for 2001Microform - 2000
This report assesses lingcod (Ophiodon elongatus) stocks in the Strait of Georgia, south-west & north-west coasts of Vancouver Island, Queen Charlotte Sound, Hecate Strait, and the west coast of the Queen Charlotte Islands. For each area, information is presented on the fishery & its management, catch, climate & ocean regime considerations, stock condition, and yield options. Interpretation of stock condition relies on recent trends in catch statistics and limited age composition data from the commercial trawl fishery. The report also includes information on lingcod biology, the history of the British Columbia lingcod fishery, and climate/ocean regimes in the north Pacific.
