Objectives

1. Estimate annual recruitments and fishing mortalities in the snapper fishery throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

2. Assess the risks to the snapper stock of a range of annual commercial and recreational catches, taking into account the mortality of discarded fish and variability in recruitment.

3. Devise a minimal cost method for future monitoring of the snapper fishery.
