 Three independent stock assessments using a Bayesian age- and sex-based model were done for Statistical Areas 025, 027, and 030 and these were combined afterwards to produce the stock status for BCO 5. The current spawning stock biomass (SSB) is 36% B0. At the current catch, the projections show the chance of the SSB being over 40% B0 at 29% in 5 years, and 30% in 10 years. Projections using 80% of the current catch result in a 54% chance of being above 40% B0 in 5 years, and 69% in 10 years.
