An updated 2018 assessment is presented for hoki, which was based on the 2017 assessment. In the base case model, the western stock was estimated to be 64 (44–86) %B0 and the eastern stock 54 (39–77) %B0, where the values in brackets are 95% credible intervals. In projections the eastern and western biomasses are likely to increase over the next five years.
