      A stage-based simulation model is used to investigate the effect of exploitation on theoretical populations representing long-lived elasmobranch and teleost species with different life-history strategies. A comparison is made between the effect of exploitation on the elasmobranch ‘k-strategists’ and other teleost species that are ‘r-strategists’. We demonstrate the effects of stage-based exploitation on a typical long-lived elasmobranch population and discuss the implications of this when designing a management plan to ensure survival of the stock.
