This report provides a five year update of a recreational effort and catch monitoring programme, covering the 2014–15 to 2018–19 fishing years. Digital camera traffic monitoring and interviews with fishers returning to high traffic ramps in FMAs 2, 7, 8, & 9 have been used to track relative catch and effort trends, which are compared with and scaled to 5 to 6 yearly NPS and aerial-access total harvest estimates, for species that are commonly landed by recreational fishers in each area.
