This document provides a brief summary of the views of the Scientific Working Group with regards to West Coast rock lobster poaching, in order to inform on the TAC for the 2020 season.

At the time of preparing the 2020 TAC recommendations, the SWG was required to summarise the current and past status of poaching levels for the West Coast Rock Lobster resource. The consensus view was that the poaching estimates to be used for projections should be set higher than those assumed previously.
