Funding Recommendations

Science Panel Recommendation: Fund

Science Panel Comments: This project proposes to analyze otoliths from fish collected from a previous TC-funded study. Therefore, the samples are already ‘in-hand’ and the project would be very cost-effective. The method provides a corroborating technique (along with fatty acid analysis) that will assist managers in identifying herring stock boundaries, thus the direct management applications are strong.
