This report describes an extensive post-fishing season dredge survey of scallops (Pecten novaezelandiae) conducted in November 2015 within the Southern scallop stock, SCA 7. The aim was to evaluate the status of the stock. The survey provided estimates of scallop population abundance, length frequency, and biomass, examined the sensitivity of biomass estimates to a range of density thresholds, and compared the current biomass and exploitation rate with relevant estimates from previous surveys.
