The Fact Sheets on this site provide information on important species of fish and shellfish produced in the Southern Region. These fact sheets are reviewed annually by the Publications, Videos, and Computer Software Steering Committee and are revised when significant new information becomes available on the subject. Any that have not been revised are considered to represent the essential state of available knowledge.
