dc.description.abstractBayesian assessment of breeding stocks B, C and G of the Southern Hemisphere humpback whales are presented. These assessments incorporate a prior for the maximum growth rate r derived from similar assessments for breeding stocks D and E. This is the first time an assessment for breeding stock B has been attempted. Results show current abundance estimates for breeding stocks B and G are low (less than 0.15K), whilst the current abundance estimate for breeding stock C much further recovered at 0.79K. Projections under a zero continued harvesting strategy estimate breeding stock C to be fully recovered by 2020, whilst breeding stocks B and G will be fully recovered only by about around 2030.en_ZA
