Kermadec is a large sub-tropical Quota Management Area (Area 10) aproximately 1000 kms to the north east of New Zealand.  It contains four main volcanic islands, spanning a total land mass of just over 33 square kilometres. 

The islands are uninhabited, except for Department of Conservation officers, who maintain the Raoul Island station.  There is a 12 nautical mile coastal marine reserve around the islands and the balance is a Benthic Protection Area.
