Report - Fisheries Assessment Report (FAR)
This document updates and summarises the catch and effort data available for BCO 5 from 1990 to 2018 (1989–90 to 2017–18 fishing years). Standardised CPUE analysis was updated for Statistical Areas 025, 027, and 030 as separate and combined indices. Additionally, an area-weighted combined CPUE series was developed. The three individual annual indices for Statistical Areas 025, 027, and 030 went on to be used in the 2019 BCO 5 stock assessment.
