The international review panel report (Cox et al. 2018) contains the following recommendations pertinent to sardine in response to key questions put to them at the annual stock assessment review meeting held at UCT from 26-30 November 2018.

Comments are provided on the recommendations of the November 2018 international review panel of the annual international stock assessment review meeting.

The Panel evaluated several supporting analyses for the sardine OMP-18 revision, including methods for projecting recruitment, for approximating assessment model estimation uncertainty and for establishing risk equivalence across old and new sardine operating models. Overall, the Panel supported the intent to project recruitment with a similar distribution to that observed historically, and made recommendations to further refine how recruitment is generated for projections.
