Abstract

Now, six years since the first stock assessment, and with the completion of a comprehensive boat-based survey of recreational fishing, ongoing annual monitoring of commercial and charter catches and a third stock assessment completed in 2013, the effectiveness of current management measures is able to be assessed. This paper also provides an overview of the determination in regard to the sectoral allocations of the demersal scalefish resource in the WCB.
