The Plenary Report summarises biological, fishery, stock assessment and stock status information for 80 species or species groups, each of which is split into 1-10 stocks. The Plenary takes into account the most recent data and analyses available to Fisheries Assessment Working Groups (FAWGs) and the Fisheries Assessment Plenary and also incorporates relevant analyses undertaken in previous years.

No estimates of current and reference biomass are available.

ELE 2

It is not known if recent catch levels or the current TACC are sustainable. The state of the stock in

relation to B

MSY is unknown.

ELE 3

ELE 3 is currently being managed within an AMP that is monitoring a CPUE index derived from

elephantfish landings in the red cod bottom trawl fishery. Before the introduction of the QMS,

elephantfish off the south east coast of the South Island were considered severely overfished, and

TACs were initially set at low levels to facilitate stock recovery. Based on the observed catches, and

on the increasing biomass trend from the CPUE analysis, it now appears that this stock has rebuilt

considerably since the mid-1980s. The TACC for ELE 3 was increased to 950 t for the 2002

fishing year under the AMP. Recent (2004/05 to 2006/07) catch levels have substantially exceeded

the TACC and the MCY; but the MCY estimate is probably conservative. Trawl targeting on ELE

has increased significantly over the past five years. However, CPUE has remained high and the

current TACC and catches are probably sustainable in the short- to medium-term. It is not known

whether current catches are sustainable in the long-term. The state of the stock in relation to B

unknown.

No estimates of current and reference biomass are available.

ELE 2
It is not known if recent catch levels or the current TACC are sustainable. The state of the stock in relation to BMSY is unknown.

ELE 3
Stock Structure Assumptions: No information is available on the stock separation of elephantfish. The Fishstock ELE 3 is treated in this summary as a unit stock.

ELE 7
In ELE 7 catches since 1987–88 have been above the MCY and below the TAC. It is not known if recent catch levels and current TACCs are sustainable. The state of the stock in relation to BMSY is unknown.
