A research cruise will be conducted from 10 to 27 July to estimate the biomass of hake and other demersal species in the finfish box.

The pre-recruitment survey prior to the second Loligo season will be conducted from 14 to 28 July to estimate the biomass of D. gahi in the Loligo box.

The Illex season was over on 15 June. The total catch of Illex by jiggers was 64,406 t.

We would like to welcome Thomas Farrugia, our new Stock Assessment Scientist.

Haseeb, Brendon, and Thomas are heading out to sea in June for a 21 day toothfish tagging trip and to conduct a hook trial on board CFL’s Hunter. The trip will be the Hunter’s inaugural fishing trip and will provide an opportunity to: (1) assess the efficacy of different hook sizes and shapes in reducing bycatch in the toothfish longlining industry, and (2) continue with the toothfish tagging scheme initiated in 2016 to provide data on movement and growth of toothfish in the FICZ and FOCZ.

The next FFLG meeting will be held in the Fisheries Department meeting room on Wednesday, 9th August 2017 at 14:00.

The next Fisheries Committee meeting will be held at the Fisheries Department meeting room on Thursday, 7th September 2017 at 09:00.

Updates of the Weekly Catches and News will be revised every Thursday afternoon.
