This workshop will be diving into rebuilding plans, reviewing the history of evaluating and implementing such plans and developing guidelines for future implementation.
WKREBUILD2 has the following ToRs:
Define a framework for scientific advice for developing rebuilding plan elements as part of overall management strategies, that could be widely applied to ICES stocks.
Develop guidelines for the evaluation of rebuilding plan elements that consider the precautionary approach, the species life history (incl. longevity), changes in productivity and rebuilding potential.
Propose the performance indicators and thresholds to be used for the acceptability of rebuilding plan elements including rebuilding target, probability of rebuilding and rebuilding time relative to rebuilding time in the absence of fishing.
Test the rebuilding plan evaluation guidelines on a limited number of test cases using a newly developed and dedicated evaluation tool
Identify any additional requirements for an evaluation tool that would allow the evaluation of rebuilding plans elements proposed in ToR (a) in the context of assessment working groups.
We hope to attract a broad range of participants so that we can cover the methodological, the advisory and the policy aspects of the terms of reference.
Contributions on these subjects are welcome:
Reviews of experiences within different advisory or management frameworks
Reviews of specific case studies and how rebuilding plans have been handled, evaluated or implemented.
Reviews of different technical tools.
Application of specific tools to specific case studies.
Strength-weaknesses analysis of different tools.
Review of guidelines and criteria for rebuilding plans used in different management frameworks.
