It is not known whether recent catches are sustainable or if they are at levels that will allow the stock

to move towards a size that will support the maximum sustainable yield.

TACCs were increased from 1 October 2006 in WWA 3 to 583 t, in WWA 4 to 330 t, and in WWA 7

to 127 t. In these stocks landings were above the TACC for a number of years and the TACCs have

been increased to the average of the previous 7 years plus an additional 10%. Despite this change the

catch in WWA 3 in 2006-07 was well above the new TACC.

TACCs and reported landings for the 2006–07 fishing year are summarised in Table 4.
