This reports presents an updated Bayesian assessment of ling (Genypterus blacodes) on the Chatham Rise (LIN 3&4) for the 2018-19 fishing year. The assessment incorporated all relevant biological, commercial fisheries, and survey data available. The current status of the stock was estimated to be 57% B0 (95% C.I.: 48–66% B0). This is unlikely to change under current catches, but may decline if catches increase to the TACC.
