No estimates of current and reference biomass are available. The current TACCs and recent catch levels are below the estimated MCY, are considered sustainable. TACs were originally set at low levels to promote stock rebuilding.

Catch curve analysis from recent catch sampling (2004–05 and 2005 06) indicates that total mortality (Z) is low, with fishing mortality at or below M. The fishery is comprised of fish across a broad range of ages across both sexes. Given that the MOK 1 catch has been fairly stable since 1993/94, this information suggests that the current TACC and catches are sustainable, at least in the short to medium term.
