The Panel recognised the very high quality of the research presented at the 2012 International Fisheries Stock Assessment Review Workshop. This included research on hake, sardine, anchovy, squid, linefish, and South Coast rock lobster. The work on management procedures (OMPs) continues to be world-leading. The Panel thanked the workshop participants for the hard work that went into preparing and presenting the workshop papers, and for the extra analyses undertaken during the workshop.

This report starts with observations from the Panel on some general issues for a subset of the species reviewed, and then focuses on the more detailed technical review and recommendations concerning each fishery. The Panel deliberations were guided by a set of key issues (see Appendix 1) and the text in square parentheses at the end of some of the recommendations reflects the corresponding key issue(s). The Panel did not have the time to address all of the key questions. The recommendations are annotated by their priorities (H, M, L and conclusions are indicated by asterisks). Appendix 2 contains some additional technical material.
