Abstract

The RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database is a compilation of stock assessment results for commercially exploited marine populations from around the world. It is inspired by Dr. Ransom A. Myers' original stock-recruitment database, which is no longer being updated. We describe the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database, as well as the current status of assessed marine species, in our publication: Ricard, D., Minto, C., Jensen, O.P. and Baum, J.K. 2013. Evaluating the knowledge base and status of commercially exploited marine species with the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database. Fish and Fisheries 13 (4) 380-398. DOI: 10.1111/j.1467-2979.2011.00435.x Its supplementary material, and in the summary document, which contains two-page summaries for each population.
