The stock assessments of tunas and billfishes made by the IATTC staff
are presented at the Stock Assessment
Review meetings (previously known as meetings of the Working Group on
Stock Assessment). These
after minor modifications, had been published in the IATTC’s Annual
Reports, up to and including that for 1998. However, to make the
assessments widely available as soon as possible, they are now being
published in a new series, the Stock Assessment Reports.
