The ASPM assessment of the Prince Edward Islands toothfish resource by Brandão and Butterworth (2004) that permitted annual fluctuations about a deterministic stock-recruitment relationship is updated to take account of further catch, GLM standardised CPUE and catch- at-length information that have become available for the year 2004. Twenty year biomass projections under the assumption of various constant annual catches are also shown. These suggest that maintenance of the present TAC of 500 tonnes is defensible.
