Hoki are assessed as two intermixing biological stocks, based on the presence of two main areas where spawning takes place simultaneously (Cook Strait and WCSI), and observed and inferred migration patterns of adults and juveniles:
- Adults of the western stock occur on the west coast of the North and South Islands and the area south of New Zealand including Puysegur, Snares and the Southern Plateau;
- Adults of the eastern stock occur on the east coast of the South Island, Cook Strait and the ECNI up to North Cape;
- Juveniles of both biological stocks occur on the Chatham Rise including Mernoo Bank.
Both of these biological stocks lie within the HOK 1 Fishstock boundaries.
