OMP 2007 re-cast is an update from OMP-2007 which will be used to set the TACs for the West Coast rock lobster fishery for the 2008+ seasons. OMP 2007 re-cast has been tuned to give the same median biomass recovery (in terms of male lobsters) over the 2006-2015 period as OMP 2007. OMP 2007 re-cast differs from OMP 2007 in three ways: i) the actual 2006 catches are taken into account, rather than assume the TAC values, ii) the 2007 interim relief tonnage of 175.06 MT is taken into account, and iii) the near shore rights holders TACs are allowed to vary from year to year in a manner similar to the recreational fishers. Johnston and Butterworth (2008) provides more details of these modifications.
