This report describes and updates the available information on stock structure of orange roughy for fisheries in the western region of the SPRFMO area. The review takes an holistic approach, where multiple observational data sets were examined in order to maximise the likelihood of correctly defining stocks, given that no single data set would provide complete and unequivocal information. The review supports the retention of existing assessment boundaries for fisheries in the Tasman Sea, but revises the Louisville Seamount Chain area based on timing of spawning.
