Projections are shown for different scenarios for the future commercial and poaching catches in Zone F for the two best fitting Operating Models (K = 4 500t, average poaching since 2008 = 350t and K = 3 000t, average poaching since 2008 = 250t) . Current poaching levels (average of 2014 and 2015, estimated as 438 and 314t respectively), if continued, would not be sustainable.
