dc.description.abstract Although two monkfish species (Lophius vomerinus and L. vaillanti) are caught off the Namibian coast, the less abundant of the two (L. vaillanti, contributing only 1 % to total landings) is not explicitly dealt with in this thesis, and the resource is treated as one species. The purpose of this thesis is to undertake a Bayesian assessment of the resource, and to use this as the basis to develop an Operational Management Procedure (OMP) for the resource. First, the biology, history of the fishery, and the history of monkfish stock assessment and management are reviewed briefly. Then the reasons for using an Age-Structured Production Model (ASPM) for assessment are discussed. en_ZA
