This report describes a January 2017 dredge survey of scallops (Pecten novaezelandiae) in the Southern scallop stock, SCA 7 (Golden Bay, Tasman Bay, Marlborough Sounds). Estimates of scallop population distribution, size structure, and biomass derived from the survey were compared with estimates made from previous surveys to establish if changes had occurred in the population. To aid comparability, new estimates of scallop growth in key areas were generated and used in population projections.
