The amateur harvest of rock lobster and scallops was estimated using creel surveys from 1 December 2007 to 28 February 2008. All the main access points were covered on the Coromandel Coast from Cape Colville to Hot Water Beach on 16 survey days. The total estimated harvest for the three months was 2.8 t meat weight of scallops and 7.3 t green weight of rock lobster. Potential improvements to the survey method for these species and how larger areas could be covered are discussed.
