Describes stock assessments of lobsters (Jasus edwardsii) in CRA 7 and CRA 8 and evaluations of operational management procedures, made with a Bayesian length-based multi-stock model using CPUE, size frequencies and tagging data, and estimating movements from CRA 7 to CRA 8. Settlement indices appeared to lack predictive power. States of the stocks are described. This work evaluated existing management procedures and requested variants.
