Web camera imagery has been used to track trends in recreational boating effort at key boat ramps in FMA 1 since 2004–05 and in FMAs 8 & 9 since 2006–07. This report provides indices of recreational effort based on these data, which are further combined with creel survey data collected over a shorter period to provide snapper and kahawai harvest indices. The inferred long term trend in snapper and kahawai harvesting in the Hauraki Gulf has been confirmed by survey based harvest estimates provided by aerial-access surveys in 2004–05 and 2011–12.
