Refinements of the BR CMP as of August 2021
reportposted on 02.02.2022, 07:24 by Doug ButterworthDoug Butterworth, Rebecca A Rademeyer
The BR CMP is refined slightly, with the principal change being the removal of caps on the TACs in the East and West areas for the first 10 years of operation. These restrictions are replaced by limitations on the extent of TAC increase allowed; the limitations depend on the recent trend in the composite abundance index for the area in question. Deterministic and stochastic results are provided for the most recent set of tunings specified by the Bluefin Tuna MSE Technical Group.
