At its 2023 Annual Meeting the Board agreed terms of reference (ICR(23)14) for its Scientific Advisory Group (SAG) to identify potential research priorities.
The SAG was asked to:
- develop a prioritised list of research needs / topics that the Board may consider directing
resources towards to advance the understanding of the drivers of Atlantic salmon marine
- for each research need identified, provide a brief assessment of how the expected information
gained could be applicable to the development of management options that could help mitigate
the impact of marine mortality on stock productivity.
The SAG are meeting virtually today to consider research needs/topics for the Board. This is the first session of the meeting.
