Australian herring (Arripis georgiana) is an important finfish resource to both the commercial and recreational sectors in Western Australia and South Australia. A decline in the commercial catches in both states during the early 1990s and ever increasing recreational fishing pressure alerted fisheries scientists in both states to a potential problem. Despite the popularity of this species there was little validated information on which to develop stock assessment models. Therefore the objectives of this research, stated above, were to collect pertinent biological and fisheries information and to use the information to develop a stock assessment model.
