 Age composition of snapper caught by bottom trawl in the SNA 7 area was estimated for the 2019–20 fishing year. A total of 999 otoliths were selected from 25 qualifying landings. The 2015, 2011, and 2008 year classes collectively accounted for 52% of fish landed. Although these year classes will likely be important to the fishery for many years, there was also evidence of high inter-annual recruitment variability. The mean weighted coefficient of variation for the SNA 7 age composition was 21%.
