The fisheries taking FLA 3 are described for 1989–90 to 2018–19, based on commercial catch and effort data. FLA 3 includes up to 14 species, with three species predominating. Standardised catch per unit effort (CPUE) analyses were conducted on the FLA 3 species complex and on the three prevalent species. Finally, an in-season management procedure (MP), which set a TACC based on partial year CPUE, was evaluated for the period 2010 to 2019, the year the MP was suspended.
