Objectives

1. Extend the current Bayesian assessment of rock lobsters off Victoria by allowing for greater spatial resolution within each management Zone.

2. Extend the assessment to allow for density-dependent growth, information from a larval settlement index, and changes over time in the Legal Minimum Length.

3. Evaluate the assessment model and potential decision rules using the Management Strategy Evaluation approach.
