Describes stock assessment of lobsters in CRA 2 and management procedure evaluations, using the length-based multi-stock model MSLM fitted to CPUE, size and tagging data. The work used McMC simulations. Current biomass is below Bref but well above Bmsy and Bmin. Management procedures were “plateau step” rules tested with seven alternative operating models; final candidates were presented to the National Rock Lobster Management Group. A technical glossary is provided.
