Effective April 2015, this is a printer-friendly summary of recreational fishing rules for the Central area.
A survey of Foveaux Strait oysters in February 2018 found all three size groups had increased from 2017. Recruit sized oysters were up 35%, pre-recruit oysters up 45 %, and small oysters up 53%; however, catch rates in 2018 are expected to remain similar. A new ddPCR method provided improved detection of Bonamia, mean prevalence in recruit-sized oysters was 7.2% compared with 1.7% using heart imprints. Bonamia mortality was low (2–3%), as were non-fatal infections (0.1%). In the medium-term, all the key indicators for the future rebuilding of the fishery are strongly positive.
Barracouta (Thyrsites atun) catches from the east coast South Island account for 87% of the total BAR 1 catch for 1990–2017, with 53% from barracouta tows. Annual BAR 1 landings were 9000–11 500 t during 2009–14, 5000–6000 t in 2015–16, and 9000 t in 2017. For the east coast South Island, an overall increasing trend was apparent after 2008 in the small vessel, bottom trawl CPUE, despite a small drop in 2015–16. This trend was similar to that seen in comparable trawl survey biomass indices.
