The 2008 “New Baseline” assessment for hake is updated to take account of further information that has become available over the past year. The update leads to only slight changes to results, which continue to manifest a lack of fit to catch-at-length distributions. The “New Reference Case” methodology (Rademeyer and Butterworth, 2009) , which resolves that discrepancy, suggests a less depleted M. paradoxus but a more depleted M. capensis resource than does this updated “New Baseline” assessment.
