 This report describes a fishery characterisation, and stock assessment model for the SCI 3 scampi (Metanephrops challenger) stock on the Mernoo Bank, Chatham Rise. The stock comprises three distinct areas, with different fishing histories, and a three area length based model was developed, with mortality, growth, selectivity and catchability shared between stocks. A base model was developed, with sensitivity to growth and mortality examined. None of the models were accepted for management.
