This paper summarises a range of catch and effort statistics for rock lobsters by 1 April–31 March fishing year for the 9 CRA QMAs, ending in 31 March 2020. These summaries include number of vessels, catch and effort (potlifts) by QMA and statistical area, landings by month, and a range of QMA-specific CPUE series that are used in stock assessments. Standardised CPUE has not been updated for 2019–20 because of comparability issues with the introduction of the new electronic reporting system.
