This report summarises the stock assessment for PAU 7 which includes fishery data up to the 2014–15 fishing year. The base case model estimated that the spawning stock population in 2015 was 18% (16–21%) of B0. The model projection made for three years using recruitment re-sampled from a period with both high and low recruitment (2002–2011), suggested that the spawning stock abundance will increase to 22% (16–29%) of in 2018 if the future catch remains at the current level, or 24% (18–31%) of B0 if the future catch is reduced to 50% of the TACC.
