The final results for the Base Case three-stock model for the West Australian (BSD), East Australian (BSE1) and Oceania (BSO) humpback whale populations are presented along with some sensitivity runs. This three-stock model allows for interchange between the western BSD population and the eastern BSE1 and BSO populations with a single interchange parameter and is preferred over a more complicated three-stock model which has more interchange parameters that are not easily estimated with the data currently available.  Results for the BSD population are compared to those from an earlier 2006 assessment and are found to be similar
