The time series of jack mackerel species catch estimates from the JMA 1 purse seine fishery is updated for 2005/06–2013/14. The determination of catch estimates incorporates spatial stratification of the fishery into two areas. From 2007/08–2013/14, annual JMA 1 catches were dominated by Trachurus novaezelandiae mainly from the western Bay of Plenty. The length composition of T. novaezelandiae catches from 2009/10–2013/14 was comprised of smaller fish than in the preceding three years.
