The Parties therefore put forward their respective proposals as reflected in the report from the first meeting of the Working Group of At the present meeting of the Working Group, the Parties further explored and explained their respective proposals without reaching a common position.
It was preliminarily agreed that, on the basis of fish biology and fisheries distribution, four main geographical areas can be identified.
The biomass results for each subarea run in the analyses are given for the year 2008 (Table 1).But the direction is clear: A small shift towards larger fish will increase the yield.The group shall, based on this, recommend design criteria to obtain intended fish size selection for cod and haddock The group shall deliver its recommendation to the Chairmen of the Permanent Committee no later than 1 September 2010.Norway suggested the following additions to the above mentioned project:.In order to prepare the ground for future improved management levende pige chats of Greenland halibut after the intermediate period, the Working Group recognises the need for scientists to continue to analyse data and publish results from the research program to improve the understanding of the species biology.The data files from the ecosystem survey have been updated and evaluated since mat report was produced and changes in valid hauls have changed the swept area estimates.The sorting grid, with minimum bar distance of 55 mm, is a regulatory measure that provides higher long-term catch than mesh sizes alone, irrespective if they are 125 mm or 135.The main goal of the Group has been to develop proposals on the establishment of optimal unified technical regulation measures for fishery of cod and haddock in the Barents and Norwegian Seas for jnrfc.Review trawl fishery statistics (catch by season and area, length composition of catches).The single most important element to obtain high long-term yield in the fishery on Northeast Arctic Cod is by controlling aggregate fishing mortality -.Further work to harmonize minimum catch size, and optimization of technical regulations.Total distribution of Greenland halibut in August-September 2008.Russian report of the scientific sub-group.Closure of the meeting Appendix.13 Om felles tiltak for regulering av blakveite som grenseoverskridende bestand Basert pa data fra det trearige felles forskningsprogrammet for erkjente Partene at blflkveitebestanden er utbredt i hele Barentshavet I samsvar med vedtak fra.Estimating the mean and variance from highly skewed marine survey data.This far northeastern part shows up as an equally important juvenile area, as the area between Spitsbergen and Franz Josef Land.The models were run into the future using a common set of assumptions.The members of the delegations are presented in Appendix.Technical regulations like selection devices and minimum catch size determine, in combination with the overall fishing mortality, the long term yield from the stock of cod and haddock.
In accordance with this plan comparative model runs for historical and future scenarios were done.
The WG mandate envisages both optimization and harmonization of technical regulation measures.
The Working Group had its first meeting 25 - in Murmansk and the report from the meeting was presented to the 37(th) Session of jnrfc.
