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.

Title: Plenary (FLA_FINAL 08)
FLA_FINAL 08.pdf (204.2 kb)

Estimates of current and reference biomass are not available.

TACCs have never been reached since the introduction of the QMS, although landings approached

the TACC for FLA 1 in 1992

–93 and 1993–94, and for FLA 3 in 1988–89 and 1996–97. Typically

flatfish populations consist of only one or two year classes at any time. The sizes of the populations

depend heavily on the strength of the recruiting year classes and are therefore highly variable. For

this reason a constant catch at the level of the current TACCs is unlikely to be attainable or

sustainable, nor would it be likely to allow the stock to move towards a size that will support the

MSY. It is unknown if recent catches will allow the stock to move towards a size that will support the

MSY.

Title: 24_FLA_09
24_FLA_09.pdf (226.6 kb)
Estimates of current and reference biomass are not available.

Flatfish populations typically consist of only one or two year classes at any time. The sizes of the populations depend heavily on the strength of the recruiting year classes and are therefore expected to be highly variable. For this reason TACCs were set high to allow fishers to take advantage of times of high abundance. Recent CPUE analyses revealed that although yellow belly flounder are short lived, inter-annual abundance in FLA 1 was surprisingly stable. These results suggest that a more conservative approach is possible.
