Abstract
Age estimates of New Zealand kingfish were derived from opaque-zone counts in sagittal otolith thin section preparations. Growth estimates (von Bertalanffy) were derived using age and length data collected from the eastern Bay of Plenty charter-boat fishery and growth increment data derived from tagging. Revised estimates of length-at-50%-maturity were 82.89 cm for males and 96.86 cm for females.
