Kamchatka flounder are assessed on an annual basis in the Bering Sea/Aleutian Islands region to coincide with the annual eastern Bering Sea (EBS) multispecies groundfish trawl survey conducted each summer and also the biennial Bering Sea slope and Aleutian Islands surveys. Due to a temporary lapse in appropriations, the Federal Government implemented a shutdown from October 1 – October 16, 2013.
