The Panel recognised the very high quality of the research presented at the 2011 International Fisheries Stock Assessment Review Workshop. This included research on hake, sardine, anchovy, horse mackerel and penguins. The work on (operational) management procedures (OMPs) continues to be world-leading, and modelling of the relationship between penguins and sardines is a world first. The Panel thanked the workshop participants for the hard work that went into preparing and presenting the workshop papers, and for the extra analyses undertaken during the workshop.
This report starts with observations from the Panel on some general issues and then focuses on the more detailed technical review and recommendations concerning each fishery. The Panel deliberations were guided by a set of key questions (see Appendix 1) and the text in square parentheses at the end of some of the recommendations pertains to these key questions. The Panel did not have the time to address all of the key questions. The recommendations are annotated by their priorities (H, M, L), while Panel observations and conclusions are indicated by asterisks (*). Appendix 2 contains a glossary of symbols and Appendices 3 and 4 contain some additional technical material.
