The amateur harvest of rock lobster, scallop, kahawai and red gurnard was estimated using creel surveys at boat access points in the 2010–11 and 2011–12 fishing years. The survey area was from Port Charles, Coromandel to Maketu, central Bay of Plenty. Over 25 000 boats were intercepted using a mix of stationary and roving creel surveys. The results were expanded to estimate harvest for whole QMAs and all methods using data from the 2011–12 National Panel Survey.
