In Alaska data limitations affect management of commercial fisheries, including sharks, rays, octopus, scallops, and some crabs and rockfish. Data limitations are pervasive in most other fisheries jurisdictions around the world, and most recreational fisheries are data-poor.

The goal of this symposium, Tools and Strategies for Assessment and Management of Data-Limited Fish Stocks, was to encourage development of new tools and strategies for assessment and management of data-limited commercial and recreational fisheries in marine and freshwater areas.
