The 2014 hoki stock assessment is presented. Both stocks (E and W) are estimated to be increasing after reaching their lowest levels in about 2006. The western stock is estimated to be 48-66%B0 and the eastern stock 59-67%B0. Five-year projections were carried out indicating that with assumed catches, the biomass of both stocks is likely to remain stable or rise slightly over the next 5 years.
