Fish stocks

This indicator will aim to show the total fish stocks that exist within New Zealand’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ).

This measure still needs to be developed.

As a proxy, we have information on New Zealand’s total allowable commercial catch (TACC). TACC is the total quantity of each fish stock that the commercial fishing industry can catch in a given year. It is the portion of the total allowable catch after allowing for customary and recreational fishing, as well as other sources of fishing-related mortality.

 

In 2018, New Zealand’s total allowable commercial catch was

603,492 tonnes.
