Conditioning of the Reference Set of Operating Models for the toothfish resource in the Prince Edward Islands vicinity

Conditioning results for the Reference Set of Operating Models identified at a Task Team meeting and described in Brandão et al. (2019) are given. The assumptions that show more marked differences in the conditioning results from those of the Base case OM01 are changes in natural mortality (OM02 and OM03), up-weighting all CPUE data by a factor of 10 (OM10), a change in recruitment residual standard deviation (OM11), alternative von Bertalanffy growth parameters (OM12) and large values of tag loss which are assumed to force good fits to the trotline CPUE (OM16 and OM17).
