This report summarises the stock assessment for paua (Haliotis iris) in PAU 5D, which included fishery data up to the 2015–16 fishing year. The reference case stock assessment model estimated that the spawning stock population in 2016 (B2016) to be 28–43% (values are 95% CIs) of unfished spawning stock biomass (B0). All three models taken to projections concluded that the stock is very unlikely to fall below the soft and hard limit, and that the stock will increase under current catch levels.
