A programme to estimate the age composition of snapper (SNA) caught by bottom trawl fisheries targeting snapper (SNA 7) and flatfish (FLA 7)  was conducted during the 2013–14 fishing year. Landings were dominated by young snapper, with those six years or less collectively making up 96% of the landed catch by number. The 6-year-old year class was singularly the most dominant in the fishery (69% of fish landed), and is likely to be significant to the fishery for a number of years.
