This document describes a new stock assessment of red rock lobsters (Jasus edwardsii) in CRA 7 and CRA 8 and describes a review of operational management procedures. This involved the length-based multi-stock model MSLM fit to CPUE indices, size frequency data and tag-recapture data; puerulus indices were not fit. Current and projected biomass in both stocks was above reference levels. A new management procedure was designed and evaluated for CRA 8.
