Red Drum Simulation Model Workshop
Red Drum Simulation Model Workshop Scheduled for October 4-7, 2021
Arlington, VA – The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (Commission) will hold a Red Drum Simulation Model Workshop as part of the ongoing simulation assessment. The simulation assessment was recommended by the Commission’s Assessment Science Committee as part of a roadmap for red drum stock assessments, which have experienced data limitations and uncertainty in the past.
The simulation assessment workshop will evaluate the performance of a range of stock assessment approaches for red drum and recommend preferred approaches for use in subsequent assessments, including the next benchmark assessment scheduled for completion in 2024. The Commission’s stock assessment process and meetings are open to the public.
The draft agenda for the workshop is available at http://www.asmfc.org/files/Meetings/RedDrumSimulationModelWorkshop_Oct2021.pdf. For more information about the assessment or attending the upcoming virtual workshop (space will be limited), please contact Savannah Lewis, Fishery Management Plan Coordinator, at email@example.com or 703.842.0740.
