This report documents the 2022 stock assessment of red rock lobsters in CRA 2. The model was fitted to length frequency data, sex ratio data, tag-recapture growth increment data, and standardised catch-per-unit-effort indices using the lobster stock dynamics model. This stock assessment estimated generally increasing exploitation rates throughout the stock’s history. Catch cuts and a period of improved recruitment have helped the stock rebuild since the 2017 stock assessment.
