The Panel recognised the very high quality of the research presented at the 2014 International Fisheries Stock Assessment Review Workshop. This included research on Southern African hake and sardine, as well as research associated with whether pelagic fishing near island breeding colonies has an impact on African penguins. The Panel thanked the workshop participants for their hard work preparing and presenting the workshop papers, for the extra analyses undertaken during the workshop, and for the informative input provided during discussions.
This report starts with observations from the Panel on some general issues for the species/programmes reviewed, and then focuses on the more detailed technical review and recommendations concerning each. The recommendations are annotated by their priorities (H, M, L and conclusions are indicated by asterisks).
