Management Track Stock Assessments
Management assessments provide routine, scheduled, and updated advice to directly inform management actions. These assessments provide scientific information to the appropriate fishery management bodies to help them make informed decisions.
Designed to be simple, efficient, and flexible, management track assessments incorporate new information on a regular cycle. Each stock has its own established cycle for updates. Some are updated every year and others have more than a year between updates. This ensures that each stock assessment is updated frequently enough to support management actions. It also ensures that all involved in the process know when and how often these updates will be available.
