A simulation testing framework was developed to evaluate and compare the performance of harvest control rules (HCRs) for 4 scampi stocks SCI 1, SCI 2, SCI 3, and SCI 6A. The harvest control rule evaluation (HCRE) framework uses CASAL stock assessment models as operating models and projects the simulated populations forward by applying an HCR each year to determine total annual catch. The framework is generalised and can be used with any CASAL model that has at least one CPUE index to project.
