Workshop on Estimation of Spawning Stock Biomass of Sardine (WKSBS)
At the ICES Annual Science Conference in Stockholm, Sweden, in September/October 1999 (87th Statutory Meeting) it was decided that (C.Res. 1999/2G07) a Workshop on Estimation of Spawning Stock Biomass of Sardine (WKSBS)(Chair A. Lago de Lanzós) would meet in Vigo, Spain from 13 – 16 June 2000 to:
1. Present and evaluate egg production estimates made by traditional and GAM methods using data from the 1999 eggsurveys in Portugal (Area IXa) and Spain (Areas VIIIc and IXa);
2. Present and evaluate the batch fecundity and spawning fraction estimates from the same surveys;
3. Discuss spawning stock biomass estimates for sardine made by the DEPM method;
4. Coordinate planning for sardine surveys in 2001.
