p preliminary - figures subject to revision
(a) Total weight of quota managed species calculated from data provided via fishers quota dockets.
(b) Average $/kg for abalone calculated from Department's quarterly abalone beach price calculations. The final figure here is a weighted average of these calculations. Average $/kg for all other species are calculated from processor monthly returns. The figures presented here represent a weighted average of the data. Note that there may not be a direct correlation between the total weight (declared by the fisher) and the average $/kg (declared by the processor). The variation is due to many factors.
