This report describes methods used to electronically groom and characterise Amateur Fishing Charter Vessel – Activity Catch Return (AFCV-ACR) data. Fishery characterisation outputs are provided for the 2010–11 to 2018–19 fishing years and can be updated using the R scripts provided to Fisheries New Zealand. Charter boat operators were also surveyed about their experience with the current reporting system, and their responses are also summarised in this report.
