2013 Assessment of Greenland Turbot in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands
Due to the October government shutdown model exploration, this year was limited. We present the reference model from last year updated with the most recent data and one alternative model which include autocorrelation in the recruitment deviations. The stock continues to be modeled using the same software as previous assessments (Stock Synthesis 3). Our reference model this year, Model 1, has the same configuration as last year’s Reference Model (2012 Model 2) and was used for all projections and specifications, Model 2 (last year’s Model 3) is presented only for comparisons.
