Title: Final report of the Stock Assessment Task Group
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The main objective of the Task Group was to consider how the NRA currently assesses fish stocks and from this determine common methodologies which will enable consistent monitoring programmes to take place throughout England and Wales. This report broadly deals with the first three tasks in the Group's terms of reference, namely to: i) determine common methodologies for assessing fish stocks; ii) evaluate the role of different survey techniques such as electric fishing, netting, fish counters, traps, catch statistics, and hydroacoustic surveying in fish stock assessment; iii) develop a common method of collecting and analyzing survey data to produce nationwide stock assessments.
