    The Working Group on Biological Parameters (WGBIOP) is a newly formed expert group which took over the responsibilities of PGCCDBS (Planning Group on Commercial Catches, Discards and Biological Sampling) on coordination of a practical implementation of quality assured and statistically sound development of methods, standards and guidelines for the provision of accurate biological parameters for stock assessment purposes. However, the focus of such a group is not only on technical aspects of data collection and quality assurance but also on accuracy in life history parameter estimations to support stock assessment. WGBIOP will review stock specific life history parameters and monitor potential changes in biological processes, such as growth rate, onset of maturity, maturity and fecundity at size/age, and related causal factors.
