Description

A workshop was held to examine two issues that significantly affect scientific management advice and which are not always being treated consistently in tuna stock assessments: (1) Assumptions about the stock-­recruitment relationship, and (2) evaluating the implications of changing mortality on juvenile and small tunas. The workshop reviewed available information and conducted several preliminary analyses.
