For stochastic future recruitment and for annual catch levels of both 575 tons (the present TAC) and 700 tons, the median of the spawning biomass estimates drops initially, but returns to its current level within a decade, while the exploitable biomass increases from 2016 Omitting the single tag recapture datum currently available for 2016 from the assessment makes a negligible difference to the results.
