Stock assessment of red rock lobsters in CRA 2 and management procedure evaluations current to 31 March 2017. The model was fit to standardised CPUE indices, size frequency, sex ratio, and tag-recapture data and used Bayesian inference to estimate parameter uncertainty.  The assessment showed a stock depleted below BREF and low estimates of spawning stock relative to the unfished level. The assessment model was used as an operating model to evaluate the performance of alternative MPs.
