Report - Fisheries Assessment Report (FAR)
Fisheries, News & Resources, Publications
Fisheries taking FLA 3 are described for the period 1989–90 to 2013–14, based on commercial data. Standardised CPUE analyses were conducted on the FLA 3 species complex and on the three most prevalent species. This serves as a platform to predict the final complete year CPUE from the first two to four months of data. Predicted CPUE is then used to drive a catch recommendation for FLA 3, which, if it exceeds the base TACC of 1 430 t, results in a recommendation for increased annual catch.
