A bottom trawl survey of the east coast South Island (ECSI) in 10–400 m depths was carried out using R.V. Kaharoa (KAH1605) in April–June 2016. The core (30–400 m) survey was the eleventh in the winter ECSI inshore time series (1991–94, 1996, 2007–2009, 2012, 2014, and 2016). Four strata in 10–30 m (shallow strata), previously surveyed in 2007, 2012, and 2014, were surveyed again in 2016 to monitor elephantfish and red gurnard over their full depth range.
