This review of information on New Zealand’s Southern scallop fishery (SCA 7: Golden Bay, Tasman Bay, and the Marlborough Sounds) was conducted to investigate factors affecting its performance. It describes the management history from 1959 to 2013, characterises commercial catch and effort, examines enhancement and rotational fishing activities, investigates scallop population distribution, biomass, and size structure, and compares landings with estimated yields (CAY). Fishery performance, stock status, CAY, exploitation rates, and drivers of productivity are discussed.
