This document describes a new stock assessment of red rock lobsters (Jasus edwardsii) in CRA 4 and describes a review of operational management procedures. This involved the integrated Bayesian length-based model MSLM fit to CPUE indices, size frequency data, tag-recapture data and puerulus indices. Current biomass was below reference levels. New management procedures were designed and evaluated for CRA 4.
