  • Of the 10 forecasts 8 (80%) were within or within 10% of the forecast range
  • Catch details were collected from 158 fishers for 422 fisher days
  • The catch rate for legal fish was 1.2 fish/fisher/day and exceeded 1.0 for the first time in over 20 years with that result due to the removal of commercial net fishing and strong recruitment from 2013-2015 with those fish now legal size (except for some slow growing fish from 2015)
  • The catch rate for legal fish was 106% higher than in 2016
