 A fishery characterisation and stock assessment have been undertaken and accepted for SCI 3. A three stock model was developed, based on previous studies. A range of sensitivities were examined, but models were broadly consistent, suggesting SSB is currently around 62–78% SSB0. Projections out to 2021 suggested that SSB would remain well above 40% SSB0 with future catches up to 20% higher than the current TACC.
