An assessment of the Cook Strait ling stock (LIN 7CK) is presented for the 2010–11 fishing year. A trawl CPUE series was the only available index of abundance believed to be reliable; there are no fishery-independent abundance indices for this stock. Biomass estimates are very uncertain. Current stock status as a percentage of B0 is estimated to be 54% B0 with a 95% confidence bound of 23–80% B0.
