The fishery is assessed primarily on commercial catch, effort and size-composition data from the commercial fishery. Annual variation in catch rate was interpreted as a relative index of abalone abundance. Interpretation of catch-rate trends was assisted by changes in median length of commercial catch. In addition, consultation with the abalone industry was undertaken to obtain their observations on the state of the stocks and market drivers affecting the operation of the fishery throughout 2008.
