This report documents the collation, summarising and plotting on maps of distributional information on commercial catches, fishing effort, and catch-per-unit effort for all of New Zealand’s shark, ray and chimaera species. The five-year period October 2008 to September 2013 was used to plot the distribution of recent commercial catches, and a longer term perspective was provided by trawl catches made during the fishing years 1989−90 to 2007−08.
