The projections conducted in 2015 are updated to include the further data now available. The results are somewhat more positive than previously as a result of the CPUE for 2015, although still low, being higher than that for 2014. Nevertheless, given the range of interpretations possible for these low CPUE data, the projections continue to point to the need for an effort restriction to be applied to the midwater trawl fishery.
