This report summarises the Sub-Antarctic hake (HAK 1 south of 46° S) fishery with spatial structure of the stock, biological parameters, and standardised catch per unit effort (CPUE). The CPUE indices were similar for the tow-by-tow data and the daily summary data and showed a similar trend to the Sub-Antarctic trawl surveys. In general, the CPUE indices had declined over the period of fishing but had levelled off in recent years as the total catch declined.
