Agenda

report from the Fishery Data for Stock Assessment Working Group. The 
panel will review the working group's work on the following tasks: 
Explain how fishery dependent and fishery

[[Page 55854]]

independent data are used in stock assessments, including how different 
data elements are used and interact in an age-based analytic 
assessment; Summarize the theoretical utility and limitations of using 
catch per unit effort (CPUE) and landings per unit effort (LPUE) as 
indexes of abundance for Northeast multispecies (groundfish) stocks, 
including recent efforts to create a CPUE for any of these stocks and 
the results of those efforts; Identify the fishery factors and fishery 
dependent data needed to create a CPUE that would be a reliable index 
of abundance for Northeast multispecies stocks--without regard to 
existing fishing practices, regulations, or monitoring systems; Compare 
the desired factors identified with existing conditions and data for 
the fishery through a gap analysis of factors and data needed, as well 
as the analytical approaches necessary, to create a CPUE that would be 
a reliable index of abundance for Northeast multispecies stocks. Other 
business will be discussed as needed.
    Although non-emergency issues not contained on the agenda may come
