This document describes the rapid update framework and applies the rapid updates for five rock lobster QMAs: CRA 1, CRA 2, CRA 3, CRA 4, and CRA 5. The rapid updates used an additional year of catch, length frequencies, sex ratios, and tag-recapture data to update the base model from the most recent full assessment or last year’s rapid update. The results provide inference about stock status in the interim years between full assessments.
