A Bayesian stock assessment of ORH 7A (including Westpac Bank) is presented. The assessment was implemented in CASAL and the stock was assessed to the end of the 2018-19 fishing year. In the base model, B0 was estimated at 94 000 t (95% CI: 86 000–104 000 t), with stock status at 47% B0 (95% CI: 39–55% B0). This is at the top end of the target biomass range of 30–50% B0.
