The RDSAP will convene to develop a standardized stock assessment methodology that can accept area (state)-specific data and work with these within the context of a Gulf stock assessment. In addition, the RDSAP will hear about new life history research conducted by Louisiana State University personnel and will consider available data on shrimp-trawl bycatch mortality and historic length composition of the commercial catch that may have not been used in the last stock assessment conducted by NMFS.
