This document updates and summarises observational and research data for southern blue whiting. We have included time series of relative abundance from acoustic surveys for each of the four main stocks (both from wide area R.V. Tangaroa surveys and local aggregation surveys), CPUE indices for Bounty Platform and Campbell Island Rise, and trawl survey indices for the Auckland Islands Shelf, Campbell Island Rise, and Pukaki Rise, as well as updated time series of length-at-age and catch-at-age.
