The Panel recognised the very high quality of the research presented at the 2017 International Fisheries Stock Assessment Review Workshop. This included research on Southern African hake, sardine and rock lobster, as well as methods for conducting assessments for relatively data-poor species with a focus on linefish. The Panel thanked the workshop participants for their hard work preparing and presenting the workshop papers, for the extra analyses undertaken during the workshop and for the informative input provided during discussions.
This report starts with observations from the Panel on some general issues for the species and programmes reviewed, and then focuses on addressing the questions posed by DAFF Research, a more detailed technical review and finally recommendations for further work concerning each. 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
