Maximise yield or minimise risk in the Blacklip Abalone fishery: using biological data to direct harvest strategies
SARDI Food Safety and Innovation
1. Quantify the seasonal and spatial variation in the blacklip abalone shell size/whole weight/meat weight ratios
2. Incorporate the biological data into the existing greenlip model and apply under the monthly fishing scenarios developed in consultation with Industry
3. Provide model outputs from each fishing scenario that detail the number of abalone harvested and their value. This information will allow Industry and managers to maximise the efficiency of their blacklip fisheries.
