The objectives were: to sample the bycatch of dredge samples from a broadly representative series of stations in Foveaux Strait; to sort, identify to the lowest possible taxon, and catalogue numbers of individuals; and to characterise sub-areas of Foveaux. Strait by macrofaunal groupings and fishing history. Macrofaunal bycatch was sampled during the biennial stratified random dredge survey estimating the size of the oyster population of Foveaux Strait. Fishers designated boundaries for Commercial, Exploratory, and Background strata. The bycatch was sampled from 60 randomly selected stations: Commercial, Exploratory, and Background areas were sampled with four strata in each, and five sample stations in each stratum.
