A bottom trawl survey of the west coast South Island in 20–400 m depth and Tasman and Golden Bays in 10–70 m depth was carried out using R.V. Kaharoa (KAH1902) in March–April 2019. The survey was optimised to estimate abundance of red gurnard, red cod, giant stargazer, spiny dogfish, tarakihi, and snapper.  The core (20–400 m) survey was the fourteenth in the time series since 1992. Two strata in 10–20 m depth in Tasman and Golden Bays were surveyed for the second time as part of a two survey pilot aimed at determining the feasibility of estimating snapper abundance.
