Catch at-age sampling of the TAR 1, 2 & 3 bottom trawl and setnet catches during the 2013–14 and 2014–15 fishing years suggest that tarakihi off the east coast of New Zealand comprise a single stock. Patterns in year class strength suggest that tarakihi recruitment to the east coast fishery largely occurs south of Banks Peninsula. Recruits then progressively move northwards up the coast such that the final destination of the majority of the older tarakihi age classes is east Northland.
