This report is part of a larger effort to provide more timely information on stock status for all stocks in the Greater Atlantic Region. The May 2014 peer review of the Northeast Fisheries Science Center's stock assessment science program (NEFSC) highlighted the inherent problems of managing fisheries resources when time lags exist between contemporary data and subsequent management actions.
