  • have examined a great many Canadian ones plus a number from elsewhere Overall and without wanting to point to specific cases I think that a sizeable fraction of them fell short of meeting the highest standards of the trade let alone the standards required for effective fisheries management Of course government stock assessment scientists are as likely as the rest of us to make mistakes but that is not I suspect the primary cause Rather in any profession only a few practitioners can be truly world leaders Stock assessments deal with specifics of local situations and the handful of top class individuals cannot do all of the work personnally Thus a gradation of quality is inevitable Government agencies naturally have review processes that are supposed to iron out these problems and achieve the excellence that Dave Crestin claims for NMFS but in my non US experience they are not very effective Besides the tendency of all committees to favour precedents and the status quo the serious errors in stock assessments are not usually arithmetic slips but the uncritical acceptance of implicit assumptions like the constancy of natural mortality rates or the independence of recruitment from spawning stock biomass Since the assessment review systems tend to be staffed by individuals with a common background as I think Gerard Conan was suggesting such assumptions are not usually subjected to the scrutiny they deserve Personally I think that the primary role in routine stock assessment should remain with some central agency though ideally one semi independent of government even though the resulting advice will often fall short of the standards of professional excellence Like Jim Kirkley I would generally discourage clients from attacking such advice through some counter assessment process as a prelude to court or political action That leads to sterile arguments and perverted scientific advice since most of us once caught in a public argument try to support the positions we have taken rather than seek out their flaws It does not produce effective fisheries management Most importantly and this echos one of Jim Wilson s points stock assessment as the term is usually understood only makes sense in a frame of reference centred on government regulation of the fisheries I think it is unfortunate for fishing industries to fight their governments at all but doubly so if they engage in battle on the government s chosen ground There is so much more that science can do to aid the industry that it is a shame to be confined to attacking errors in assessments Perhaps unlike Jim however I do still think that scientific reviews of stock assessments performed on behalf of the fishing industry have great value Even though my work leads to the same answers regardless of who pays the bills many people in business seem to trust results more if they hold the purse strings Thus even confirmation of official conclusions by an independent review can have value Since consultants have to satisfy their clients if they wish
