This study attempted to fit stock assessment models and test potential management procedures for pāua (Haliotis iris) stock in quota management area (QMA) PAU 3B. A flat or increasing catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) prevented the fitting of stock assessment models, leading to the use of CPUE relative to CPUE in other QMAs. This approach suggested a relatively low exploitation rate, high stock status near 60% of unfished biomass, and continued low exploitation from proposed harvest control rules.
