This FAR describes an assessment of SNA 1 conducted in 2012. Although the modelling made significant progress toward a robust SNA 1 assessment the results were not sufficiently robust results to be useful for management. Major weaknesses of the model were the estimation of initial depletion and poor MCMC diagnostics and further investigations would be needed to resolve these issues.
