Assessment of the Patagonian toothfish (D. eleginoides) in Subarea 48.3 indicates that the current status of the stock is at 50% of B0. Spawning biomass has been relatively constant in recent years. Projections indicate that a constant catch of 2,420 tonnes in the 2020 and 2021 seasons would be consistent with the CCAMLR decision rule.
