Coordination and synthesis of the management implications is now being sought by managers, scientists, and conservation organizations. This will require an overview of GSI studies with implications for management of stocks. It is also important that the limitations of GSI probability assignments are understood in applied assessments.

The session invites contributions that include examples of GSI studies integrated with:
