No estimates of current biomass are available. The current stock size is most likely below BMSY as catch rates have not increased over the last 5 years despite a large reduction in annual removals from the stock. The assessment model projected a rebuild since 2000, which was not supported by the data from the fishery. The Working Group rejected the assessment results because of the poor fit to recent CPUE data. The TACC was reduced to 1 t (effectively closing the fishery) from 1 October 2007 to promote the rebuilding of the stock towards BMSY.
