The illusion of plenty: hyperstability masks collapses in two recreational fisheries that target fish spawning aggregations
Abstract:Fisheries that target fish spawning aggregations can exhibit hyperstability, in which catch per unit effort (CPUE) remains elevated as stock abundance declines, but empirical support is limited. We compiled several fishery-dependent and fishery-independent data sets to assess stock trends in the barred sand bass (
