 This report summarises trends in the FLA 1 fishery and updates the standardised CPUE indices for flatfish caught in six set net fisheries between 1989–90 and 2020–21. Long-term declines in standardised CPUE are evident in the Manukau and Kaipara harbours. The Hauraki Gulf index shows an overall declining trend with periodic increases to 2017 and has been generally stable since. Variable trends are evident in the remaining three areas, although it is unclear if trends are indicative of abundance.
