  • Description:
    "A special theme session and workshop on data-limited stock assessments was held at the 67th annual conference of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI) in Barbados, West Indies during November 3-7, 2014. Contributors to the GCFI special session provided presentations on a variety of topics relating to fishery-dependent data collection. The 1.5 day GCFI workshop provided an opportunity for scientists, managers, and stakeholders to identify and prioritize the optimal elements to incorporate in designing efficient data-dependent statistical collections. A pre-workshop questionnaire survey was employed to obtain information on the backgrounds of attendees and level of involvement in data collection systems. Presentations included an overview linking management to data collection, and case studies describing existing data collection systems in the region. Participants listened to presentations on best practices for biological data collections and novel approaches for engaging stakeholders in data collection. Participants also engaged in an interactive activity to design a data collection system for a specified level of resources. During the workshop, participants were involved in breakout group sessions addressing: 1) linkages between data and management needs, 2) stakeholder involvement and improving communication, 3) electronic monitoring, and 4) the use of management strategy evaluation (MSE) as a tool to simulate the effectiveness of management advice. Participants addressed key questions on what data collection practices are currently being used to minimize uncertainty in data-limited assessments. Finally, the workshop participants identified best practices relating to minimum data collection for improving data-limited stock assessments in the Caribbean region, taking into consideration financial resource availability"--Executive summary.
