The 5th ICES Workshop on the Development of Quantitative Assessment Methodologies based on life-history traits, exploitation characteristics, and other relevant parameters for data-limited stocks took place in Portugal in 2015. Participating from VIMS were graduate students Quang Huynh (4th from L) and Kristen Omori (5th from R), as well as VIMS Professor John Hoenig (white shirt and sunglasses near middle of 1st row). The workshop was the fifth in a series devoted to using life-history characteristics to predict properties of a stock for assessment purposes.
