Overview

Conduct a spatially explicit benthic impact assessment to describe and quantify the likely nature and extent of impacts to benthic taxa or communities by mobile bottom fishing methods in New Zealand.

A wide variety of species are harvested on or near the seabed in New Zealand’s Territorial Sea (TS) and Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ). Mobile bottom fishing methods that target these species can significantly impact benthic communities. Numerous studies have been conducted in New Zealand to understand the effects of fishing on different benthic habitats.
