Assessment
 

Assessment year: 2011
The CECAF Working Groups have adopted the following Biological Reference Points (BRPs):
- Limit Reference points: BMSY and FMSY
- Target Reference Points: B0.1 and F0.1
Stock status is assigned based on current estimates of fishing mortality (Fcur) and biomass (Bcur) relative to these target and limit reference points (Bcur/BMSY, Fcur/FMSY, Bcur/B0.1, Fcur/F0.1). The results from the stock assessment of this stock are found under the “Biological state and trend section”.
Assessment Model
Type:  Biomass-aggregated
Schaefer dynamic production model

For the period 2001-2010, the data series on catch and effort of the industrial fishery trawlers were made available to the Working Group. For catch data on Pagellus ssp., the Working Group used the total catch series for 2001-2010 and the abundance index for Equatorial Guinea also for the period 2001-2010.
Overall Assessment Results

The model did not provide a satisfactory fit to the data and thus the assessment was rejected.
Scientific Advice

As a precaution, the effort can be maintained.
