This report documents the preparation of data on observed protected species captures in New Zealand fisheries during the period between 2002–03 and 2014–15. Recorded captures included captures of seabirds, marine mammals, and turtles. The observer records were linked to fishing effort data, and corrections to capture records and species identifications were made, prompted by expert reviews through necropsies and photograph examinations.
