Stock assessment for the Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery 2010

The 2010 assessments of stock status of the key Southern and Eastern Scalefish and Shark Fishery (SESSF) species are based on the methods presented in this
report. Documented are the latest quantitative assessments for the SESSF quota species. Typical assessment results provide indications of current stock status, in addition to an application of the Commonwealth fishery harvest control rules that determine a Recommended Biological Catch (RBC). These assessment outputs are a critical component of the management and TAC setting process for these fisheries. The results from these studies are being used by SESSFRAG, industry and management to help manage the fishery in accordance with agreed sustainability objectives.
