Management procedure

A pre-agreed framework for recommending or making fisheries management decisions, such as setting catch limits, that is designed to achieve specific management objectives. A fully developed MP specifies which monitoring data will be collected, how the data will be analyzed and what harvest control rule(s) will be applied, and has been simulation tested to determine likely performance across a range of uncertainties (e.g., via MSE).
