The fisheries taking snapper in SNA 2 were analysed from 1989–90 to 2015–16 based on commercial catch and effort data. SNA 2 is split into two areas (SNA 2N & SNA 2S) at the Mahia Peninsula, and combined CPUE indices created for each hypothesised sub-stock. The indices for both areas declined from 2001–02 to 2009–10. From 2009–10 the SNA 2N index displayed a slightly increasing trend, whereas the more volatile SNA 2S index had a decreasing trend.
