PW 08 Fishery Independent Index Development Under Changing Survey Design

The SEDAR Procedural Workshop 8 (PW 08) will be convened to improve the quality of fishery-independent data inputs and streamline future stock assessments by defining best practices for generating indices of relative abundance and size composition that incorporate data from multiple surveys and/or account for survey changes through time. The in-person workshop will be held November 2-4, 2022 in Tampa, Florida. A series of webinars will be held before and after the workshop from May 2021 – November 2022.  The findings of the workshop panel will be available January 2023.
