Title: FAR 2016/46 Recruitment of freshwater eels 1995–2015.
FAR-2016-46-Eel-Recruitment.pdf (3.0 MB)
Recruitment of freshwater elvers was quantified using catch data and elver ages from otoliths at nine sites. Age and length distributions showed several year classes are present at each site and length at age is highly variable between sites. There is a short-term recruitment cycle of up to seven years, and no evidence of an overall decline for shortfins or longfins since the 1990s. A consistent link between recruitment and trends of the Southern Oscillation Index was not evident.

Title: FAR 2015/30 Catch per unit effort (CPUE) analyses and characterisation of the South Island commercial freshwater eel fishery, 1990–91 to 2012–13
FAR_2015_30_2899_EEL2013-01_Obj1-2 MS3 RR4.pdf (20.8 MB)
A characterisation and catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) analysis were carried out for the South Island commercial freshwater eel fishery for fishing years 1990–91 to 2012–13 by eel statistical area, and for shortfin (Anguilla australis) and longfin (A. dieffenbachii) separately.

Title: FAR 2014/21 Assessment of the eel fishery in the Pouto Lakes in Northern Kaipara.
FAR_2014_21_EEL2010-03 (obj. 2, MS7).pdf (1.8 MB)
Eel populations were sampled from seven lakes along the Pouto Peninsula that were selected by Te Uri o Hau. Eel population structure was typical of the Northland region being dominated by shortfin eels (93%), and catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) (5.08 kg/net/night) was similar to the mean commercial unstandardised CPUE of 4.2 kg/lift. Shortfin eels aged were 12 years old on average and displayed average annual length and weight increases of 42.42 mm/year and 30.07 g/year respectively.

The commercial eel (longfin, Anguilla dieffenbachii; shortfin, A. australis) monitoring programme began in 2003–04, capturing processor recorded data from all individual landings throughout New Zealand on eel catch weights, species composition, size grades, and catch location at the catchment level. This report provides detailed results from the 2012–13 to 2014–15 fishing years, and also examines trends in the North and South Island time series from 2003–04 to 2014–15.
