This report updates descriptive analyses of commercial catch and effort data, and samples of catch composition from the Ministry’s Observer programme, for the orange roughy fishery on Chatham Rise and Campbell Plateau (ORH 3B), using data to the end of the 2015–16 fishing year. No substantive new fishery areas were identified on the northwest Chatham Rise. A new non-spawning fishery in the Spawning Box developed on northeast Chatham Rise. Much of the sub-Antarctic fishery had been abandoned.
