In the ISAB’s letter of January 20, 2000 to the Council, we proposed to address the Council’s request to review the draft Performance Standards and Indicators appended to the Council’s Artificial Production Review (APR) by preparing three documents dealing with the following topics:
- Appropriateness of the Draft Performance Standards and Indicators
- Scientific Basis for the Evaluation Process
- Development of an Appropriate Data System
This is the first of these reports, addressing the appropriateness of the hatchery performance standards and indicators.
