D’Archino, R.; Neill, K.F.; Nelson, W.A.; Fachon, E.; Peat, C. (2019). New Zealand Macroalgae: Distribution and Potential as National Scale Ecological Indicators.
New Zealand Aquatic Environment and Biodiversity Report No.207. 217 p.
Canopy-forming macroalgae are internationally recognised as critical components of coastal ecosystems as primary producers, coastal buffers and provision of habitat. This report evaluates the use of large brown macroalgae as indicators of ecosystem health by: summarising the international and national literature; testing the responses of key species to stressors in culture; investigating a range of approaches to mapping and monitoring, including the use of drones and machine learning to analyse underwater videos.
Tuck, I.D.; Hewitt, J.E.; Bulmer, R.H. (2019). Monitoring Recovery of Benthic Fauna in Spirits Bay.
New Zealand Aquatic Environment and Biodiversity Report No. 206. 74 p.
This report describes changes in the benthic communities of Spirits Bay related to fishing pressure and environmental factors. Survey data were analysed from 2006, 2010 and 2017. Epifaunal and infaunal communities consistently identified year, habitat, depth and fishing effects. Weaker fishing effects were detected from recent surveys, where fishing effort was lower. Species identified as sensitive to fishing were previously identified as sensitive on the basis of life history and morphology.
This report provides the provisional estimates of the sales of tree stocks and the areas of commercial forest planted in 2018. It also provides a tentative estimate of mānuka seedling sales and the area planted.
This report describes the New Zealand recreational catch of southern bluefin tuna in the 2017–18 fishing year. A new recreational fishery developed in 2017 off Cape Runaway with the main access point at Waihau Bay. An on-site boat ramp survey estimated the catch from Waihau Bay to be 69 southern bluefin in June and July 2018. Sport fishing club weigh station records and charter boat catches were compiled. An estimate of unaccounted catch was made. The national recreational harvest estimate for southern bluefin tuna is 15 t and the estimated range is 13.4 t to 17.0 t in 2017–18.
The fisheries for flatfish located off the east and west coasts of the upper part of the North Island (FLA 1) are described for the period 1989–90 to 2016–17 using compulsory reported commercial catch and effort data held by Fisheries New Zealand.
