  • Description:
    The purpose of this report is to provide timely information to the u.s. fishing industry and other interested parties on catch rates and average lengths of commercially important groundfish sampled during a groundfish assessment survey conducted in the eastern Bering sea in the summer of 1993. The survey was conducted by the Resource Assessment and Conservation Engineering (RACE) Division of the Alaska Fisheries Science Center (AFSC) during the period from June 1 to August 4. This report briefly describes survey methods and contains figures illustrating the distribution, relative abundance, and size composition of commercially important species of groundfish. Species included are walleye pollock, Pacific cod, yellowfin sole, rock sole, flathead sole, Alaska plaice, arrowtooth flounder, and Greenland turbot. An appendix to the report presents detailed position and catch data for each station fished. A similar report for species of crab has been prepared by personnel of the Kodiak Facility of the AFSC.
