Adaptive Management Programme proposals and monitoring

Trophia is contracted by the New Zealand Seafood Industry Council (SeaFIC) to assist with analyses required under the the adaptive Management Programme. The adaptive Management Programme (AMP) was introduced in 1991 by the NZ Ministry of Fisheries (MFish) as a basis for varying the levels of Total Allowable Commercial Catch (TACC) of fishstocks for which there is limited information on stock size.

New proposals include a descriptive analysis of current knowledge and evaluation of proposed monitoring tools/decision rules. Existing AMPs are monitored and reviewed.

This project is funded by various Industry clients of the New Zealand Seafood Industry Council (SeaFIC)

Outputs include client reports presented to the Adaptive Management Stock Assessment Working Group that may be available by request from MFish or SeaFIC.
