About the Regions
We have aggregated the stocks contained in the RAM Legacy Database into specific regions, defined by a combination of the management authority and marine ecosystem boundaries. For each region, there are various forms of summary data available for fish and invertebrate stocks, including: counts of assessed stocks in the region; biomass coverage (range of years) of stocks in the region; stock status summarizes (regional mean relative biomass and relative exploitation rates); and summarizes of surplus production by stock. The regional summaries can be viewed on the webpage for each region below, or downloaded as a single PDF file. These graphics can also be found individually in the graphic gallery of plots.
