An updated Bayesian assessment was presented for the LIN 5&6 (Sub-Antarctic) stock. A model fitted to proportion at-age and survey relative biomass series and using free trawl survey q’s was adopted as the base model. This estimated that B0 was 290 000 t and that B2014 was 86% of B0. The current stock size was estimated to be well above the management target of 40% B0, and is likely to increase slightly over the next 5 years at the most recent catch level or to decrease at the level of the TACC.
