About this book

The International North Pacific Symposium on Invertebrate Stock Assessment and Management was held on March 6-10, 1995 in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. Emphasis was on temperate, benthic species and the Symposium focused on new, innovative evaluation of the implications and needs for changing management approaches and demands in invertebrate fishery science. Presentations at the Symposium were structured around the following six sessions: Estimation of abundance within the specified areas; Spatial distribution of abundance and implications; Dynamics of harvested stocks and ecosystems; Population modeling and parameter estimation; Invertebrate fisheries management; and Decision making in invertebrate fisheries management.

There are 43 papers in the proceedings, including a Symposium overview.


Part 1 Assessment of abundance and related parameters: survey sampling - getting more out of your survey designs - an application to Georges Bank scallops (Placopecten magellanicus), Stephen J. Smith and Ginette Robert, adaptive cluster sampling - efficiency, fixed sample sizes and an application to red sea urchins (Strongylocentrotus franciscanus) in southeast Alaska, Doug Woodby, spatial analysis for marine populations - factors to be considered, William G. Warren, snow crab, Chionocetes opilio, stock assessment in the southwestern Gulf of St. Lawrence by bottom trawl survey, M. Moriyasu et al, assessing stocks of abalone (Haliotis spp.) - methods and constraints, Paul E. McShane; change-in-ratio methods - new developments in change-in-ratio and index-removal methods, with application to snow crab (Chionoecetes opilio), Chiu-Lan Chen et al, preliminary estimates of exploitation rates in the Tasmanian rock lobster (Jasus edwardsii) fishery using the change-in-ratio and index-removal techniques with tag-recapture data, S.D. Frusher et al; methods that incorporate the depletion process - estimating king crab (paralithodes comtschaticus) abundance from commercial catch and research survey data, Jeremy S. Collie and Gordon H. Kruse, a modified catch-at-size analysis model for a red sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus franciscanus) population, Han-Lin Lai and Alex Bradbury, a length-based approach to estimate population abundance of Tanner crab, Chionoecetes bairdi, in Bristol Bay, Alaska, Jie Zheng et al. Part 2 Growth, mortality and yield-per-recruit: assessment of the eastern Bering Sea snow crab, Chionoecetes opilio, stock under the terminal molting hypothesis, Robert S. Otto; interpretation of growth, mortality and recruitment patterns in size-at-age, growth increment, and size frequency data, Barry D. Smith and Louis W. Botsford. Part 3 Spatial pattern and its implications: the analysis of concentration and crowding in shellfish research, J.M. (Lobo) Orensanz et al; fertilization success in free-spawning marine invertebrates - review of the evidence and fisheries implications, Don R. Levitan and Mary A. Sewell. Part 4 The fishing process: quantifying potential impacts of behavioural factors on crustacean stock monitoring and assessment - modelling and experimental approaches, J.T. Addison and R.C.A Bannister; the benefits of catch and effort data at a fine spatial scale in the South Australian abalone (Haliotis laevigata and H. rubra) fishery, John K. Keesing and Janine L. Baker; concentration profiles and invertebrate fisheries management, Jeremy Prince and Ray Hilborn. Part 5 Population dynamics: aggregated population analysis - intertidal population estimate of razor clams (Siliqua patula) at beaches near Masset, Haida Gwaii/Queen Charlotte Islands, and applications of fishery management, R. Russ Jones et al, an evaluation of surplus production analysis for assessing the fishery for New Zealand red rock lobsters. (Part contents)
