Stock status is a key parameter for evaluating the sustainability of fishery resources and developing corresponding management plans. However, the majority of stocks are not assessed, often as a result of insufficient data and a lack of resources needed to execute formal stock assessments. The working group involved in this publication focused on two approaches to estimating fisheries status: one based on single-stock status, and the other based on ecosystem production. For the single-stock… 
Applying a New Ensemble Approach to Estimating Stock Status of Marine Fisheries around the World
The exploitation status of marine fisheries stocks worldwide is of critical importance for food security, ecosystem conservation, and fishery sustainability. Applying a suite of data‐limited methods
Trade-offs for data-limited fisheries when using harvest strategies based on catch-only models
Many of the world's fisheries are unassessed, with little information about population status or risk of overfishing. Unassessed fisheries are particularly predominant in developing countries and in
Assessing the Potential of Catch-Only Models to Inform on the State of Global Fisheries and the UN’s SDGs
TLDR
It is concluded that although further COM refinements show some potential, most promising is the ongoing research into developing biomass or fishing effort priors for COMs in order to be able to reliably track stock status for the majority of the world’s fisheries currently lacking stock assessments.
Estimating Fisheries Reference Points from Catch and Resilience
This study presents a Monte Carlo method (CMSY) for estimating fisheries reference points from catch, resilience and qualitative stock status information on data-limited stocks. It also presents a
Evaluating Catch-Only Methods to Inform Fisheries Management in the East China Sea
China contributes the largest catches to global marine wild-capture fisheries. The majority of them are harvested from China Seas which are highly productive, but are facing heavy fisheries
ESTIMATION OF ATLANTIC SKIPJACK FISHERIES' PRODUCTIVITY USING A CATCH BASED METHOD AND HYPOTHESES ON STOCK RESILIENCE
SUMMARY Fisheries are managed using biological information of fish stocks, historical catch data and complex numerical models. However, the availability of reliable and complete information of both

Contrasting Global Trends in Marine Fishery Status Obtained from Catches and from Stock Assessments
TLDR
How use of catch data affects assessment of fisheries stock status is evaluated and it is concluded that at present 28-33% of all stocks are overexploited and 7-13% ofall stocks are collapsed, which is fairly stable in recent years.
Status and Solutions for the World’s Unassessed Fisheries
TLDR
It is found that small unass assessed fisheries are in substantially worse condition than assessed fisheries, but that large unassessed fisheries may be performing nearly as well as their assessed counterparts.
Using global catch data for inferences on the world's marine fisheries
Detailed stock assessments, including the estimation of the absolute biomass of the ‘stocks’ exploited by fisheries, are often viewed as the gold standard for indicators of their status. However,
Stock Reduction Analysis, Another Solution to the Catch Equations
TLDR
A simple new method of linking catch equations when age data are not available is proposed, which is applied to Pacific ocean perch, Pacific herring, and Pacific hake stocks being actively managed by the State of Washington.
An Evaluation of Harvest Control Rules for Data-Poor Fisheries
Abstract For federally managed fisheries in the USA, National Standard 1 requires that an acceptable biological catch be set for all fisheries and that this catch avoid overfishing. Achieving this
Examining the knowledge base and status of commercially exploited marine species with the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database
Meta-analyses of stock assessments can provide novel insight into marine population dynamics and the status of fished species, but the world’s main stock assessment database (the Myers
What catch data can tell us about the status of global fisheries
TLDR
It is shown explicitly that trends in catch data are not an artifact of the applied method and are consistent with trends in biomass data of fully assessed stocks, and that, while comprehensive stock assessments are the preferred method for evaluating single stocks, they are a biased subsample of the stocks in a given area, strongly underestimating the percentage of collapsed stocks.
