This FAR describes an assessment of the SNA 1 conducted in 2013. This assessment overcame two major weaknesses identified in the 2012 assessment – poor estimation of initial depletion and poor MCMC diagnostics and was deemed to provide useful stock status information for fishery managers. The assessment predicted the east Northland and Hauraki Gulf stocks to be above the soft limit of 20% B0 but below the 40% B0 target. The Bay of Plenty stock was predicted to be below the hard limit of 10% B0.
