The fisheries taking red gurnard in GUR 7 are described for the period 1989–90 to 2015–16, based on commercial catch and effort data. Standardised catch per unit effort (CPUE) analyses were conducted on six fishery definitions, with two west coast South Island (WCSI) fisheries accepted as indices of abundance. The abundance of red gurnard in GUR 7 is presently very strong, an observation supported by both the CPUE analyses and the fishery-independent WCSI trawl survey.
