 New Zealand Gamefish Tagging Programme release and recapture data is updated to include the 5501 fish tagged and 112 fish recaptured during the fishing years 2016–17 to 2018–19. The number of gamefish landed by New Zealand Sport Fishing Council clubs is recorded. The combination of data from these sources provides a reasonably complete record of recreational catch of billfish, mako and blue sharks. It is indicative of recreational catch for tuna and other large shark species.
