Only two bottom trawl fisheries on the east coast of the South Island, targeting red cod and flatfish, take red gurnard in significant amounts in GUR 3. CPUE analyses, using bottom trawl catch and effort data from the major bottom trawl fisheries, lead to the conclusion that red gurnard in GUR 3 are presently in a healthy state. Research trawl information for red gurnard off the east coast of the South Island, over 14 surveys spanning 1992 to 2009, lead to a similar conclusion.
