DEPLETED
Depleted stocks are those stocks where the spawning stock abundance is below a predetermined threshold or where low stock abundance precludes an active fishery. Factors that can contribute to DEPLETED status include but are not limited to fishing, predation, competition, water quality, habitat loss, recruitment variability, disease, or a combination of these factors. Determination is based on approved DMF, ASMFC, and/or regional Council FMPs and/or stock assessments. [Overfishing; Overfished]*
Species designated as DEPLETED would be priority candidates for FMP development.
