Catch-at-age distributions were estimated using data and otoliths from the trawl fishery for barracouta (Thrysites atun, BAR) in BAR 4 and BAR 5 for the 2019–20 and 2020–21 fishing years and for gemfish (Rexea solandri, SKI) in SKI 3 and SKI 7 for the 2020–21 fishing year. Barracouta were mainly ages 2–5. Most of the gemfish in SKI 3 were age 1 with a second mode at ages 4–7, while in SKI 7, they were ages 5–9 with a moderate number of ages 0–2 present.
