Freshwater pests, including Didymo, could squeeze the life out of our country’s most precious rivers and lakes. They can be spread by a single drop of water or plant fragment. You can help to protect your favourite waterways if you always CHECK, CLEAN, DRY any equipment that comes into contact with the water, between every waterway, every time. current 23 October 2014
Some of New Zealand’s fresh waterways have been contaminated with pests. Once established, they can spoil the recreational use of a waterway, as well as the way they look. With your help we can stop frest water pests from spreading. current 23 October 2014

Estimates of relative species proportions and catch-at-age for the three jack mackerel (Trachurus) species in the commercial JMA 7 catch for 2012–13 are presented. The available time series of catch-at-age estimates, sex ratios and species proportions for the JMA 7 catch (2006–07 to 2012–13) are summarised. current 20 October 2014
Age compositions of orange roughy were estimated from three spawning plumes (Main Plume, Rekohu Plume, and Mount Muck) on the northeast Chatham Rise (ORH 3B) sampled in 2013, from a 1994 wide area research survey on the northwest Chatham Rise (ORH 3B), and from three research surveys on the Challenger Plateau (ORH 7A) in 1987, 2006 and 2009. The distributions were produced for use in assessments of these stocks. current 20 October 2014
This report documents a further two years of recreational catch sampling from KAH 1, which took place during the first 4 months of 2011 and 2012. Trends in length and age distributions from East Northland, the Hauraki Gulf and the Bay of Plenty are broadly consistent with those seen in the existing 8 year time series lasting from 2001 to 2008. A time series of total mortality estimates suggests that overall rates of mortality have declined in recent years and are at acceptable levels. current 20 October 2014
Kaitiaki in the Te Tai Hauāuru Regional Fisheries Forum and Tauranga Moana Iwi Customary Fisheries Trust play a significant role in assisting Marae with the provision of kaimoana (shellfish and finfish) for customary events held on Marae and other venues for whānau, hapū and Iwi. This Report identifies kaimoana species that are cultural significant to Iwi, how the current process is working for Marae and the main issues with gathering customary harvest data and working with Iwi. current 20 October 2014
