The fisheries taking elephantfish in ELE 5 are described for the period 1989–90 to 2015–16, based on commercial catch and effort data. Only one bottom trawl standardised catch per unit effort (CPUE) analysis could be conducted, given the relatively small amount of available data. The abundance of elephantfish in ELE 5 is presently below the peak CPUE observed around 2010–11. However, current levels of CPUE remain well above the long-term average levels.
