Description

The results of the first experiment on a large-scale mixed stock fishery in the Russian far-eastern seas are given in this report.Until recently, all large-scale fisheries traditionally remained single-species fisheries with regard to target species (pollock, herring, salmon, saury, etc.). The mixed stock fishery approach has been applied in the near coastal groundfish fishery for food production from small vessels. The total harvest of this groundfish fishery did not exceed 50,000 tons for each fisheries region in the Okhotsk and Bering seas. Experiments on the application of the mixed stock fishery approaches to a large-scale pollock fishery in the Okhotsk Sea was planned after the 1996-1997 fishing season. We from TINRO reported on the results of this experiment to interested specialists during the two-day Alaska Seas Marine Conservation Biology Workshop in 1997 in Anchorage, Alaska (Center for Marine Conservation 1998).
