FAR-2017-14- billfish-and-gamefish-tagging.pdf (2.4 MB)
The New Zealand Gamefish Tagging Programme began in 1975. Release and recapture data is summarised, including the 7467 fish tagged and 121 fish recaptured during the years 2013–14 to 2015–16. The number of gamefish landed by New Zealand Sport Fishing Council clubs is recorded. The combination of data from these sources provides a reasonably complete record of recreational catch of billfish, mako and blue sharks. It is indicative of recreational catch for tuna and other large shark species.

Title: Synthesis of New Zealand gamefish tagging data, 1975 to 2014.
FAR-2016-24-Gamefish-tagging-synthesis.pdf (5.9 MB)
The Gamefish Tagging Programme has recorded 68 775 released billfish, pelagic sharks, tuna and kingfish in the New Zealand EEZ over the last 40 years, mainly by recreational fishers. Release data is used to characterise the fishery. The 2166 recaptures help describe the distribution and movement of kingfish, striped marlin, mako and blue sharks with limited records for 16 other species. Tag and release has become integral in gamefish catch recording with benefits for research and conservation.

Title: Size, maturity and age composition of mako sharks observed in New Zealand tuna longline fisheries.
FAR-2016-22-Mako.pdf (1.4 MB)
This report assesses the catch composition of shortfin mako sharks taken by surface longlines in New Zealand waters. Length-frequency distributions, maturity and reproductive status were assessed from observer data. An ageing protocol was developed using vertebral sections, and growth curves and a scaled age-frequency distribution of the catch were generated. The proportions of mature sharks caught were estimated.

Title: Commercial catch composition of highly migratory elasmobranchs
FAR_2013_68_2725_HMS2010-03 Obj1-3; MS7, 17, 27.pdf (4.4 MB)
The catch composition of blue, porbeagle and mako sharks in New Zealand fisheries was assessed. The spatial and temporal distribution of catches was analysed for 2007−08 to 2010−11 using reported commercial data. Length-frequencies, maturity, sex and fin weight data were analysed from 1993 to 2012 using observer data. Sharks segregate by size and sex in New Zealand waters, leading to marked spatial variability, but other observed trends may be biased by trends in fisher practices.

Title: FAR 2014/69 Indicator based analysis of the status of New Zealand blue, mako and porbeagle sharks.
FAR_2014_69_2832_HMS2014.pdf (2.3 MB)
Cartilaginous fishes have low productivity and are vulnerable to over-fishing, but a lack of data means that stock assessments are rarely possible. To address that limitation, this report performs indicator analyses for New Zealand blue, porbeagle and mako sharks. There was no evidence that the stocks of these sharks in New Zealand waters have been adversely affected by fishing at the levels experienced since 2005, and there are good signs that they are increasing.
