Vaughan, Douglas S. and Merriner, John V. (1991) Assessment and Management of Atlantic and Gulf Menhaden Stocks. Marine Fisheries Review, 53(4), pp. 49-57.
The organization of coastwide management programs for Atlantic menhaden, Brevoortia tyrannus, and Gulf menhaden, B. patronus, are described. Recent assessments of the status of the Atlantic and Gulf menhaden stocks are summarized. Estimates of population size and fishing mortalities are obtained from virtual population analysis, and are used in determining spawner-recruit relationships, spawning stock ratios, yield-per-recruit, and surplus production. Management issues are addressed in the framework of assessment results.
