Cod in this region is considered to be a metapopulation with small inshore and larger offshore components (DFO, 2005) which mix in the summer, excluding the possibility of assessing them independently. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife considers a Newfoundland and Labrador “Designatable Unit” which includes this (NAFO 2J3KL) management unit, along with Northern Labrador cod (NAFO 2GH), and Southern Grand Bank cod (NAFO 3NO) (COSEWIC, 2010).
