Tag technologies and design strategies for estimating SNA 1 and SNA 8 recruited stock abundance are evaluated. Computer simulations were used to investigate possible trade-offs between different tag-release and recapture options and to evaluate the statistical power offered by sequential tagging to track population biomass over time. We also review sources of bias identified from past SNA 1 and SNA 8 tagging programmes; providing recommendations for accounting for bias in future programmes.
