Objectives

1. To improve the fishery database by providing data on catch and effort on a finer spatial scale

2. To provide in-water estimates of stock abundace and status

3. To improve the understanding of the biology of greenlip abalone (particularly the effects of high growth rates on size at maturity and egg production and the influence of seasonal condition changes on length-weight relationships

4. To develop simulation models which canbe used to assist in management decisions
