At the ICES Annual Conference in Brugge, Belgium in October 2000 (88th Statutory meeting) it was decided (C. Res.2000/2G10) that a Study Group on Estimation of Spawning Stock Biomass of Sardine and Anchovy (SGSBSA) wouldbe established (Chair: Yorgos Stratoudakis) and would meet for the first time in Lisbon from 22-25 October 2001 to:a) design the sardine and anchovy DEPM surveys for spring 2002;b) standardise all methodologies within DEPM, with particular attention on the estimation of spawningfraction;c) decide the most appropriate adult sampling design in cases of anticipated large regional differences inabundance and fish reproductive properties;d) analyse the feasibility of using the continuous underway fish egg sampler (CUFES) to improve DEPMestimates.
