Report on the "Analyses of trends in West Coast Rock Lobster poaching and policing effort data".

The raw poaching and policing effort data obtained from DAFF CD: Compliance have been analysed simply to check trends in the lobster abandonments and confiscations and five types of policing effort over the most recent 5 years. The purpose of this analysis is to confirm that the assumptions for future poaching in the projection period of the assessment remain reasonable since the TAC recommendation for the 2017/18 season will be based on those projections.
