During 2018, the Northeast Fisheries Science Center will be conducting a benchmark stock assessment for summer flounder. A "benchmark” is a scientifically rigorous review of all aspects of an assessment. Benchmark assessments allow all elements of the assessment to be revisited and tested, including data, models, and methods. This process includes extensive internal and external peer review. The final assessment results for summer flounder will be available in 2019.
