The Panel recognised the very high quality of the research presented at the 2019 International Fisheries Stock Assessment Review Workshop. This included research on stocks of southern African hakes, sardine and rock lobster. New information and research related to an experimental spatial fishing closure near African penguin colonies was also presented.
This report starts with observations from the Panel on some general issues for the species and analysis programmes reviewed, and then focuses on answering the questions posed by DEA Research, providing a more detailed technical review where necessary, and finally recommending further work concerning each topic. The recommendations are annotated by their priorities (H, M, L). Much of this report reflects responses to the questions. For ease of reading, answers to the questions that also have research components are indicated by an asterisk.
