The New Zealand hoki stock assessment was independently reviewed, with a focus on evaluating the assumptions and observational data sets that were determining the estimates of stock size and status. The review was conducted in the first half of 2018. The most informative observational data sets are known to be the catch-at-age estimates, which suggested a larger stock, and the Sub-Antarctic trawl survey, which suggested a smaller stock. Conclusions and recommendations for further work arising from the review are presented.
