This report summarises the stock assessment for paua (Haliotis iris) in PAU 5D (at the southern end of the New Zealand South Island), which included fishery data up to the 2015–16 fishing year. This report describes the model structure and output, including current and projected stock status. The data inputs are described in a separate Fisheries Assessment Report. The stock assessment was implemented as a length-based Bayesian estimation model implemented in AD Model Builder, with point estimates of parameters based on the mode of the joint posterior distribution, and uncertainty of model estimates investigated using the marginal posterior distributions generated from Markov chain-Monte Carlo simulation.
