 Catch at-age sampling of TAR 1, 2, 3 , 5, 7 & 8 bottom trawl fisheries during the 2018–19 and 2019–20 fishing years suggest tarakihi comprise two stocks, an east coast stock and a west coast stock. Patterns in year class strength suggest that recruitment to the east coast stock largely occurs south of Banks Peninsula. Recruits progressively move northwards as they mature. West coast stock recruitment appears to originate from Tasman/Golden bays; fish move both north and south as they mature.
