    "The Groundfish Assessment Review Meeting (GARM), a regional peer-review process developed to provide assessment updates for the 19 stocks managed under the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (Multispecies FMP), occurred during 15-19 August, 2005, in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. The Terms of Reference were as follows: Using models or proxy methods employed at the 2002 Groundfish Assessment Review Meeting (GARM) and subsequent SARC or TRAC meetings for the stocks listed below: (a) provide updated catch information (landings and discards, where appropriate) for the stocks to be assessed. Catch-at-age data (based on port sampling) will be estimated, where applicable, (b) provide updated research vessel survey indices (through spring 2005) for all appropriate survey series, including NMFS spring and autumn series, Canadian series, and state survey series, (c) for stocks where sufficient data are available, estimate 2004 fishing mortality rates and spawning stock biomass, and provide estimates of 2005 stock sizes and associated measures of uncertainty, (d) for the remaining stocks where sufficient landings and survey data are available, use proxy methods to estimate the 2004 exploitation ratio and biomass index, (e) evaluate stock status relative to applicable Amendment 13 biological reference points (Fmsy and Bmsy;) and relative to Amendment 13 projected F, biomass and catches.
