This report updates the CPUE analysis for the New Zealand surface longline fishery for swordfish, to be used in a revised stock assessment for the wider South Pacific region. Effective targeting of swordfish increased over time due to greater use of light-sticks, a concentration of fishing around the full moon and at night, and the legalisation of swordfish targeting in 2004.
