Poaching confiscation data have been updated using all data currently available until the third quarter of 2009. The data have been reworked in terms of a standard Model year y that is taken to run from October of year y-1 to September of year y. This was necessary for reasons of internal consistency in the assessment process which uses a Model year defined in this manner. The data provided by A. Mackenzie have been reworked in the same way as Plagányi (2008), and the “revised” trend and minimum numbers confiscated are given in this document.
