The graph shows the 2013 escapement at roughly 12K. PFMC showed an ER of 0.76 that year... meaning the 12K escapement represented 24% of the adult return. Do the proportionate math and you get an unfished adult run-size of 50K.
Wrap your mind around that for a second. A 50K adult return fails to meet the e-goal of 14.6K.
The horribly disjointed management of this stock permits over 3/4 of the adult return to be intentionally killed thru fisheries and ultimately fails to meet the basinwide MSY e-goal. More astounding yet is that GH is subsequently REMOVED from the official list of stocks subjected to "overfishing".... YGTBFK, right?
