No estimates of current and reference biomass are available for pale ghost shark.

For all Fishstocks it is not known if recent catch levels are sustainable or at levels that will allow the stocks to move towards a size that will support the MSY. TACCs were increased from 1 October 2004, in GSP 1 and GSP 5, to the approximate average of the previous four year catches. However catches have since declined to well below these levels. Information from trawl surveys indicates that recent catch levels have had no impact on the biomass and there is good recruitment of small pale ghost sharks on the Chatham Rise and in the sub-Antarctic area.
