Amended Decision Framework for Setting the TACC
STEP 1: EGG PRODUCTION
Is the egg production estimate above the limit reference point?
Reduce or maintain the TACC to return the egg production to above the limit reference point within two years, with a 75% probability
STEP 2: AVAILABLE BIOMASS
Is the available biomass at the target?
Adopt a TACC that achieves the target by 2020/21
Adopt a TACC that maintains the available biomass at the target
STEP 3: RAW CPUE
Is the two-year trend in CPUE consistently contradicting the two-year trend in available biomass?
Adopt proposed TACC
RLRAG review of data and model outputs to establish reasons for the inconsistency
Possible RLRAG-recommended change to the proposed TACC
