 Updated descriptive analyses for all New Zealand ling fisheries are presented, incorporating data up to the 2015–16 fishing year. An updated assessment is presented for the stock LIN 7WC (west coast South Island). The stock size prior to fishing was estimated to be more than 65 000 t, but the upper bound on this estimate was highly uncertain. The stock in 2015–16 was very likely to be above the biomass target (40% B0), and virtually certain to be the above the limit reference point (20% B0).
