Results from a TAR 1 at-sea sampling programme conducted by Sanford NZ Ltd and Aotearoa Fisheries Ltd during the 2010-11 fishing year are presented and discussed. Although the sampling failed to achieve full spatial coverage across TAR 1, spatial coverage was very good in some sub-areas for example the Bay of Plenty. A key recommendation for future industry sampling programmes is for greater emphasis to be placed on data validation and quality assurance, and independent review.
