This document describes the lobster stock dynamics (LSD) model: a size-structured model for developing stock assessments of red rock lobsters (Jasus edwardsii) in New Zealand. The LSD model can be used to develop single-area or multi-area stock assessment models. The model was coded in Stan – a language that was developed specifically for Bayesian inference. This document serves as a reference for the model.
