The analysis includes catch and effort data from the mid-1980s (FSU) and from the QMS for 1989-90 to 2000-01. Red gurnard is principally caught by bottom trawling. An important target fishery operates within GUR 2 and red gurnard also represents a significant bycatch in trawl fisheries targeting flatfish and tarakihi and, to a lesser extent, snapper and trevally. Due to the interaction between these fisheries, annual and seasonal trends in each of the main species caught in association with red gurnard were also summarised. The TACC for GUR 2 is consistently under-caught and the total annual catch may be constrained by the available quota from the other species caught in association with GUR 2, principally TAR 2, SNA 2, and TRE 2.
