Fishing for oysters in Foveaux Strait does not allow for tow-by-tow reporting of bycatch and oyster discards. These data were estimated from stratified sampling in February 2022. Oyster discards above and below legal size during the 2021 season were relatively low (< 3%). Live bycatch was a small proportion of dredge contents, represented 65 taxa (most of negligible weight). Non-QMS species (86.2%) mostly 2 species, bryozoans-sponges (2.4%), and QMS species (11.4%, mostly SUR and some SSC).
