Descriptions of black oreo and smooth oreo fisheries are presented with data from the 1978–79 to the 2019–20 fishing years. Reported landings over all management areas combined have been stable for the past five years and close to the TACC in areas OEO 3A and OEO 4 but were well below TACC in areas OEO 1 and OEO 6. Since 2009–10 the number of vessels catching oreos in OEO 3A and OEO 4 remained relatively constant but two or fewer vessels caught oreos in other recognised fisheries in some years.
