The RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database is a compilation of stock assessment results for commercially exploited marine populations from around the world. It is inspired by Dr. Ransom A. Myers' original stock-recruitment database, which is no longer being updated.

We detail the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database, as well as the current status of assessed marine species, in our new publication:

Ricard, D., Minto, C., Jensen, O.P. and Baum, J.K. (2012) Evaluating the knowledge base and status of commercially exploited marine species with the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database. Fish and Fisheries 13(4): 380-398.

its supplementary material, and in the summary document, which contains two-page summaries for each population.

Several other publications have also used the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database. Learn more.

In addition, a number of new research projects using the RAM Legacy Stock Assessment Database are now underway. Learn more.
