Overview

Overall Objective:
Estimate the extent and intensity of seabed contact by bottom fishing in New Zealand’s Territorial Sea and Exclusive Economic Zone using fisher reported data and geospatial position reporting (GPR) data.
Specific Objectives:
1. To assist MPI with the grooming of fisher reported data and compile summary statistics for all deepwater (1989 – 2020) and inshore trawl and dredge fishing (2007 – 2020) by fishing year, depth zone, sediment categories, fishable area, and any other agreed habitat classifications or proxies, and to identify any trends or changes to meet management needs.
2. To develop methods to map the extent and intensity of bottom contact by bottom fisheries for 2018–19 using GPR data and compare the outputs to those derived in Objective 1.
