 In this report, five criteria were used to identify which species future research into recreational release mortality should focus on. The four highest priority species were: snapper, blue cod, kingfish, and kahawai. Relevant national and international published studies that have investigated the relative incidence and possible causes of recreational release mortality for these species are reviewed, and experimental methods are proposed, to further investigate this issue.
