Fisheries New Zealand reports on the status of fish stocks and fisheries in New Zealand waters.

Annual stock assessment

Each year, we assess the status of as many fish stocks and fisheries as possible against the requirements of the Harvest Strategy Standard for New Zealand Fisheries.

Tips - try using:
  • one word for precise results - for example, alligator
  • multiple words for broader results. For example, alligator meat returns documents with either alligator or meat
  • quotation marks to search a specific term - for example, 'alligator meat' returns documents with the exact phrase 'alligator meat'
Published after date must be later than or the same as Published before date.
