2016 Assessment of the Sculpin Stock Complex in the Gulf of Alaska

February 19, 2016

The Gulf of Alaska (GOA) sculpin complex is managed in Tier 5 and is assessed on a biennial basis to coincide with the biennial GOA groundfish trawl survey. These surveys occur in odd years, and for these years a full assessment of the sculpin stock complex is conducted.

GOA sculpins are managed with a single total allowable catch (TAC) for the entire Gulf of Alaska region; there is no area apportionment.
