Estimates of current absolute biomass are not available.

School shark TACs were originally set at half the 1983 catch because of apparently declining catch rates and concern about the undoubtedly low productivity of the species. However, catches and actual TACCs have steadily increased since 1986–87. CPUE indices are characterised by high uncertainty, but there are no indications that current catches are not sustainable in the short-term. However, it is not known whether recent catch levels or the current TACCs are sustainable in the long-term. The status of SCH 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 relative to BMSY is unknown.
