The data to which the South African sardine assessments are conditioned are not all raw data. Some data have already been subjected to analyses and refinements. This document serves to record the generation of the data used in the sardine assessment carried out in 2021, not only for transparency purposes, but also to assist in maintaining continuity in the method(s) used to calculate data for subsequent assessments as these calculations are often done “behind the scenes” and details seldom recorded.
