The Scientific Council of NAFO decided to establish a Working Group on Reproductive Potential at the conclusion of the NAFO 1998 Symposium entitled "Variations in Maturation, Growth, Condition and Spawning Stock Biomass Production in Groundfish". A report of the Working Group and contributions to it are included in this volume. As well and an additional volume providing reference sources of available data on the reproductive biology of 53 fish stocks if published separately in the NAFO Scientific Council Studies, Number 37.
The papers are currently available as pdf versions only.
