 This report documents a May 2020 dredge survey project to evaluate the population status of scallops (Pecten novaezelandiae) in the Southern scallop stock, SCA 7 (Golden Bay, Tasman Bay, Marlborough Sounds). The analysis estimated the spatial distribution, length frequency distribution, abundance and biomass of scallops within the area surveyed, examined the sensitivity of biomass estimates to a range of density thresholds, and compared the current biomass with estimates from previous surveys.
