Estimates of current and reference biomass are not available.

Flatfish populations typically consist of only one or two year classes at any time. The sizes of the populations depend heavily on the strength of the recruiting year classes and are therefore expected to be highly variable. For this reason TACCs were set high to allow fishers to take advantage of times of high abundance. Recent CPUE analyses revealed that although yellow belly flounder are short lived, inter-annual abundance in FLA 1 was surprisingly stable. These results suggest that a more conservative approach is possible.
