61st Northeast Regional Stock Assessment Workshop (61st SAW) assessment report

This assessment is for Atlantic surfclam in the US EEZ (federal waters, 3-200 nm from shore) individual transferable quota (ITQ) fishery (Appendix 7). The assessment divides the US stock into a northern (Georges Bank or GBK) and a southern area (south of GBK to Cape Hatteras) for modeling purposes (Figures 6 and 7). However, the resource is managed as a single stock so estimates for the north and south are combined for status determination.
