Fisheries Independent Survey Based
Operational Assessment Tools

Status: Completed (February 2007)
Coordinator:  Institut Français de Recherche pour l’Exploration de la Mer - IFREMER

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​FISBOAT tackled the major issue of unreliable fish stock assessment through ​the use of new methods based exclusively on research vessel survey data.

FISBOAT project:

  • Evaluated how these methods perform in producing advice within defined management criteria, such as determining the optimum level of harvesting
  • Studied the sensitivity of the methods in anticipating changes in population biology and survey performance
  • Compared, through case studies, test results and the corresponding management advice with historical records and actual events in specified fisheries​​​​
