Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request; Patent Law Treaty, 5634-5635 [2020-01850]

Download as PDF 5634 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 21 / Friday, January 31, 2020 / Notices previously conducted a stock assessment for uku in 2017 using a datalimited length-based approach. The 2020 benchmark assessment diverges significantly from the 2017 assessment in that it implements the first integrated assessment of a domestic stock in the U.S. Pacific Islands Region. The integrated assessment uses the Stock Synthesis (v. 3.30) framework to integrate catch per unit effort indices, size frequency, diver survey, and catch data into a single age-structured model. PIFSC used this integrated model to estimate biomass and stock status through time, and evaluated stock status against the maximum sustainable yield based reference points described in the Council’s Fishery Ecosystem Plan for the Hawaii Archipelago. The 2020 assessment provides projections to inform management setting of acceptable biological catch and annual catch limits for 2020–2026.
